  • An A-line coat or jacket to knit in 8 sizes (S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X/5X) and two lengths that features dramatically twining vertical cables at side seams and along front openings, with a wide, ribbed collar that converts to a cowl when the wind blows cold. Worked in one piece to the underarm with a tailored fit in the shoulders, this garment knits up quickly in lofty worsted or chunky weight yarn to provide a cocoon of warmth for late fall and winter weather.
    Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape. Shown here in Bare Naked Wools Chebris Worsted (long version), color Frappé and short version in Spirit Trail Vesta
