Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Fall 2009: “A deep hood, a crinkly texture stitch, and an oversized fit combine with a slightly thick-and-thin handspun undyed wool to give the Clásica Coat its rich tactile impact. Deborah Newton adorns flattering and bulk-minimizing raglan shaping lines with echoing texture. A yarn incorporating undyed wool in two natural fleece colors creates and organically shifting marled effect.”

Finished Size: 38 (42, 46, 50, 54)“ bust circumference, buttoned. Jacket shown measures 42”, modeled with plenty of positive ease.

Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Wool Clásica (100% wool; 138 yd 126 m/100 g): #703 taupe, 12 (14, 15, 16, 18) skeins. Yarn distributed by Fairmount Fibers.

Needles: Sizes 8 (5 mm) and 9 (5.5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Additional Gauge: 24 sts and 22 rows = 4” in textured patt on larger needles.


  • To break up color runs on all pieces, alternate two balls, using each ball for two rows, then switching.
