"Happy coat styling with lines so graceful they define its name (quiet and calm)," reports de Longpre. "Slightly oversized, wrap front, to knit in your favorite worsted weight wool. A wonderful jacket for transitional layering." De Longpre is still understating its virtues. Elegant and comfortable and serene, it's an A-line shape (sleeves too) with subtle short-row shaping at the shoulders. Sleeves are modified drop (i.e., indented once, then carried up straight). The beautiful double moss border adds more texture and interest. Note that finished chest measurement does not include front bands.
