Let’s face it, Canada is a cold place to live for much of the year. We need all the woolly help we can get. This oversized, almost knee-length coat is here to the rescue! Wear it indoors or out, in the city on your way to work, or in the country for spring or fall walks. The deep back pleat and wide collar give the coat a flattering silhouette. And because it’s knitted from the top down, you can easily customize the length. The Lopi wool has a surprising drape as well as a lovely halo after wet blocking. This is a quick knit with minimal finishing and echoes of early 1960s style.
Choose a size with at least 6” of ease. Shown with 7” of ease.
Takes 9 (10, 11, 13) balls of Main Colour + 1 ball of Contrast Colour for pocket lining. Purchase extra if you intend to add length.
