„So what makes this Shirt a Coughing Shirt?“, someone asked me recently. Probably the tradition, I replied jokingly. Our kids might wear them all winter long, to keep their chest and back warm and prevent or ease a cold. Friends and family swear by these handknit garments.

Mainly though, the secret lies in the densely knit natural yarn, that makes for the warming effect. (And, of course, the whole lot of love that it‘s made with!)

The design of the shirts is simple but so is the execution. The wearing is just as practical. They can be worn over a onesie/undershirt and under a shirt or sweater.

The project is perfectly suitable for beginners!
