From Knitty:
Inspired by the traditional shearling style, this coat features dense double-loop stitch trim and a thin decorative stripe around the body.

Worked in a thick yarn, it knits up quickly and can be keeping you toasty warm within days of casting on.

The super-soft merino wool will feel great against your arms while wearing it with a t-shirt in milder weather, but the coat can also brave the coldest winter as there’s enough ease to allow for a sweater underneath.

The hood is shaped to prevent the dreaded pointy head look so you’ll actually want to wear it up. You might even find yourself wishing for colder weather just so you can.
