Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Fall 2008: “Teva Durham holds two very different yarns together to create a heavy gauge, marled look fabric in the New Pea Coat: A singles wool gives slinky elasticity to the all over basketweave texture, while a cotton/cashmere blend adds structure.”

Finished Size 35½ (40, 44½, 49, 53½)” bust circumference. Sweater shown measures 40”, modeled with about 8” positive ease at bust. This design requires positive ease.

Yarn:

  • Loop-d-Loop by Teva Durham River (90% cotton, 10% cashmere; 103 yd 94 m/50 g): #8 poppy (red), 9 (10, 11, 13, 14) balls.
  • Loop-d-Loop by Teva Durham Moss (85% merino, 15% nylon; 163 yd 149 m/50 g): #10 crimson, 6 (7, 7, 8, 9) balls.

Needles Size 11 (8 mm): 29” (or longer) circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Stitch holders (optional); tapestry needle; twelve 13⁄8” buttons; sewing needle and matching thread; 2 large snaps

Notes:

  • Hold one strand of each yarn together throughout.
  • The body is worked in one piece to the armholes.
  • The front placket, collar, and cuffs are worked from side to side.
