Pattern of the Week: Walnut Street Coat
From the pages of Knit.Wear Fall 2016, it’s our Walnut Street Coat.
The pattern is unique in that it’s worked from the top down, but has set-in sleeves. It’s also completely seamless—once you’ve finished knitting, it’s done! The plaid pattern on the collar is formed with a combination of stripes and slip-stitch crochet to add a fun pop of color. Make it in a go-with-anything neutral like the sample, or make it a riot of colors using up odds and ends from your stash.
