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.

IMPORTANT
Please note that there is no error in the instructions regarding the division of the upper body sections. The instructions state that you should not count the “seam st” (the stitch to the left of the stitch markers) in the upper body sections. If you ignore that stitch, all the sections will have the same number of stitches. You may want to place a second marker to the left of each seam stitch if that helps you visualize what is going on.
