When I’m knitting I like to break things down to their core shapes, this modular knit breaks a long statement coat into it’s core geometry. Wearable and versatile, this piece, like you, is ready to party.

This big mohair hug is the perfect piece for cold weather, and the button on cape is a unique and unexpected detail.

About the garment:
Cob is not your average mohair jacket,
About the piece: if there even is such a thing! Cob is knit one piece at a time to create a generous yet flattering shape made to fit you.

With a hood inspired by a boxing robe and with a train that can be folded into a cape this piece has a lot of fun and simple details you’ll fall in love with.

This flowing garment will keep you warm while also being stylish.

Yarn:
Yardage:
The entire garment is knit using 1 strand of fingering held with 1 strand of mohair.

Fingering: I used both Hedgehog skinny singles and sock and Uschitita Merino singles. I used a variety of left overs. Colours are: HHF: Raku, Fool’s gold, Bee’s Knees, Egg Yolk, Potluck, Pollen. Uschitita: Tweety. I used a total of 600grams/2600yards of fingering weight yarn.

Mohair: I used Hedgehog Kid Silk to hold with the fingering weight. The colours I used were: Egg Yolk, Raku, Bee’s Knees Polen. I used a total of aprox 250grams/2300yards of Mohair

Colour combos in order of use, fingering listed first:
A: Fool’s gold + Egg yolk. (Start of Back Panel and end of edging)
B: Pollen + Pollen (End of Back Panel)
C: Tweety + Egg Yolk (Both Fronts)
D: Bee’s Knees + Bee’s Knees (Hood and Light stripe in Sleeve)
E: Egg Yolk + Egg Yolk (Yellow stripe in Sleeve)
F: Raku + Raku (Dark Stripe in Sleeve)
G: Potluck + Egg Yolk (end of sleeve and start of edging)

When choosing yarn for Cob, think of creating a pallet across one colour and using a lot of complimentary shades. I tried to stick to yellows going from a white with a few specks of light yellow to a mustard so dark it’s almost black and every shade in between.
