Mashed-up Classics Coat
The name of this sweater is a play on the classic fair-isle motifs I used to design it. The stitches are classic, the way they are used is not! I juxtaposed houndstooth with argyle, gingham and plain stripes.
It’s work in the round, bottom-up, with steeks for the front, armholes and neck. The fronts have picked-up stitches to create a sturdy double button band.
The sleeves are picked up from the steeked sleeve openings, so there’s no sewing here whatsoever!
And the bonus feature is: you could wear it inside out! The loops of yarn on the inside of the garment are, to my mind, as pretty as the outside…
