Red Riding Coat
Short Description: A timeless classic: the double-breasted A-line pea-coat with a nice fitted hood and cute details like a back flounce and textured front bands. Cozy and sweet! Suitable for an advanced beginner knitter, the coat is knit from the top down with just one seam at the top of the hood (a seamless hood solution is suggested). The body is worked flat, the sleeves are worked in the round. Stitches are picked up along each side edge and hood to work the textured band in one piece.
