Inspired by the loose fitting robes of priests and aristocracy (often the interesting evil ones) in high fantasy novels the coat lends drama to every occasion. It could equally well be worn with a tight wide belt in contrasting colour for a more feminine look. Ultimately it is a large canvas on which to let your imagination go wild - your Tabula Rasa. This version is knit in stripes but there are no limits to how you imagine yours. Knitted in a cloud-like lace weight yarn the coat is light despite it’s size and the addition of stainless steel and the heavy hem gives definition to the shape.
