Hip Hop Coat
Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2005: “The texture and color of the yarn in this coat provide plenty of interest, so Ann Budd chose to work the full-length design in easy stockinette stitch with a bold ribbed trim. The deep hand-warming pockets are worked along with the body, then a lining is added and whip-stitched to the inside. The high collar can be folded down or left standing. Big, bright buttons are an essential accent that offer practical closure.”
