Product Description

If you are a hipster that knits, you'll fall in love with this chunky knit car coat!

Yes – it's almost all knit, which is rather refreshing, and surprisingly speedy due to the big needle size.

The bulky yarn has just the right amount of loft and softness to make the knitting fly by while allowing you to produce a highly wearable knit coat that does not weigh a ton!

Cozy detailing, like the knit-in front pockets, shawl collar (also knit-in!), straight sleeves (great for layering!), and Garter stitch cuffs, make this a great additon to your fall/winter project list and wardrobe.

Length can easily be added to the body and sleeves with extra rows (and extra yarn).

And if you knit the sleeves in the round, the only purling is a little bit at the Garter cuffs and for the pocket linings.

Short row shaping is worked at the shoulders for a clean fit and is also used to shape the top of the shawl collar so it sits perfectly at the back neck.
