This cozy hooded coat is knit seamlessly from the top down with simultaneous set-in sleeves. The hood is added by picking up stitches around the neckline and optional afterthought pockets are knit in a lighter-weight yarn to reduce bulk. A simple cable edges the fronts and is paired down the center back. For best results, choose a yarn with similar properties to the recommended yarn (non-superwash, a bit wooly!)
