Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Winter 2008/09: “Twinkle’s Wenlan Chia once again demonstrates why she’s a master at manipulating conventions of proportion, knitting her loose-fitting coat with a bubble-shaped back, a deep foldover collar and three-quarter sleeves. Oversized eyelets and giant buttons match the heavy fiber gauge; the coat’s knit with ‘Soft Chunky’ by Twinkly by Wenlan/Classic Elite Yarns.”

“Loose-fitting bubble coat with ΒΎ-sleeves, bubble shaped back and deep collar. Designed by Twinkle.”
