  • Oculus Coat by Anne Hanson
    An A-line coat or jacket to knit in 8 sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X) and two lengths featuring oversized hourglass cables along side seams and raglan shaping, with garter stitch hems and front edges. The high, slouchy collar can be buttoned up to form a self cowl or opened to spread over the shoulders. Worked in lofty worsted or chunky weight yarn, this garment knits up super fast to provide a cocoon of warmth for late fall and winter weather.
