Note: Also available in the Knitting Daily ebook for free. This ebook may not be available in the future.
Pattern Description from Knitting Daily website:
“Based on a duffle shape, this oversized hooded coat features deeply cuffed sleeves, dropped shoulders with saddle details, roomy pockets, and toggle closures. The cable stitches repeat over evenly divisible row increments to make the coat relatively easy to knit, yet highly textured. This project is suitable for the intermediate knitter. It is ideal for someone new to cables because there are several to learn, but keeping count of them is relatively easy.”
