Inspired by Phoebe Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye.

“Worked quickly in two strands of Berkshire Bulky and lightly fulled, this coat has vintage charm. The use of clasp closures instead of buttons eliminates the need to fuss with buttonholes and means the same pattern can be used for a boy’s coat as well. And the yarn line has an extensive color range, so you could easily make these quick-knitting coats in favorite colors for all the kids on your list.”
