Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Fall 2005: “A sophisticated knitted coat is the perfect garment for cool autumn days. Mari Lynn Patrick worked this one in a cushy knit-and-purl stitch, and gave it slight shaping along the sides for a flattering fit. Important crafted details include the buttoned belt in back, a stand-up collar, and crocheted trim in contrasting colors at neck, sleeve cuffs, and hem.”
