A great coat for cold weather. The body of the shaped coat is kept simple in St st with seed stitch edges. The back has a inverted box pleat to add extra interest. The stunning collar is designed to stand out in a bold texture and a reversible cable, and it can be worn a number of ways. Issara is intended to be worn with a 3 ½–4 ½” / 9–11.5 cm positive ease to accommodate bulkier cold-weather clothing. Because it’s worked in bulky yarn, it will knit up relatively fast for a coat.

Issara was previously published and is available in Twist Collective and also available at annekuolukito.com.
