Make a sweeping statement in this dramatic long coat with an innovative notched collar in cartridge rib. The fronts are cut away from hip to hem to swing freely open, and the drop shoulders create just a touch of detail at the narrow sleeves. In woolen-spun Shelter, Corvid moves beautifully without weighing you down.


The back and fronts are worked flat from the bottom up and sewn together. The sleeves are picked up around the armholes and worked circularly to the cuff. The front extensions and collar are picked up and worked flat after garment assembly.

Size A (for Main Fabric)
One 32” circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed

Size B (for Ribbing)
One 32” circular needle and one set of DPNs, two sizes smaller than Size A

32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).
