A contemporary car coat–over-sized but not too roomy. The jacket is knit with sport weight doubled, but it can easily be converted to a soft lightweight worsted; just be mindful of the gauge. There's plenty of room to play with your own design ideas also. Perhaps all one color, stripes or amazing one-of-a-kind buttons (who said they have to match?). This will soon be one of your most-loved garments. Pair it with an amazing scarf, or belt; love it layered!
