A real head turner! I just loved combining cables and lace in this long jacket. Seed stitch (moss stitch if you’re across the pond) wraps around the bottom, curves up along the front and around the fabulous shawl collar. Construction is straightfoward and from the bottom, and the collar is a continuation of the front edge, shaped with short rows. Lots of nifty cable techniques.
