Pattern description from No Sheep For You, page 69: “Designer Libby Baker loves the texture, flow, and crisp feel of linen. For her tailored, classic coat, she chose an affordable cotton/linen blend that gives heft, drape, and crispness without pomposity. Added bonus: the blend is a little easier on the hands than pure linen, which helps when you’re knitting this much fabric. Libby recommends a gentle, cold machine wash to even out the stitches, stop the edges from curling, and maximize drape. For stubborn curly spots, try a little steam.”
