21 stitches = 4 inches
in 2-color stockinette
US 8 - 5.0 mm
US 5 - 3.75 mm

A cuff to cuff jacket available only as a kit in 2-ply yarn. Cossack Coat is based on the Southwest design, which is published in Ann Bourgeois’ “Fair Isle Sweaters Simplified.” The Bourgeois’ two-color technique weaves the yarns rather than stranding. You will need a very long cable needle (120 cm/about 48 inches) for 5.0mm/US 8 needle.

Fair Isle/two-color knitting

From the designer’s website

Our sideways sweaters are knit in two halves. Each half starts at the cuff and increases at the body to form a very large tube with a steek at the bottom where the ribbing will be added.
