shawl collar wrap coat

Shawl collar wrap coat

Shawl collar wrap coat is a luxurious and versatile ribbed coat with a large collar, which can be worn in a variety of ways.

As seen in these images, the coat can be worn with a button (or brooch) fastening; belted either with a self-belt or a chunky leather belt; with the collar worn down, folded around the neck, or even as a hood .

The coat body is knitted in a simple 2×2 rib, with the collar knitted in a 1×1 rib.

Yarn: The coat is knitted using Rowan Lima – a beautifully soft mix of alpaca (84%), wool (8%), and nylon (8%) (110m (120yds) per 50g ball). **this yarn has been discontinued, but substitute yarns can be found here. When I find a good substitute I will update this info.**

Sizes & yarn quantities: The pattern gives instructions for sizes 32-34ins, 36-38ins, 40-42ins, (81-86, 91-97, 102-107cm), using 18: 20: 22 balls
