the Swing Coat

My latest design is a piece for The BagSmith to show at TNNA. Made with 2 (125yds/115m each) of their new merino bumbs and a #50(25mm) needle. This oversized coat is knit cuff to cuff and from the top down. The hardest techniques involved are an invisible cast on, short row shaping and either grafting or a 3 needle bind off. I would have to rate this for an intermediate knitter. S/M/L sizes available.

This is a piece I would wear everyday in the winter, the merino feels so good and I love the oversized fit.

Pattern available as a PDF download. $6.50
