Opulent, free-flowing cables meander up this oversized coat in Kirsten’s clean and elegant signature style. Beneath the high-relief fabric of chunky Quarry lies careful tailoring to keep Rigel from overwhelming your frame; waist shaping and set-in sleeves ensure a neat fit despite the loose effect. All pieces are worked flat from the bottom up. While the edges appear unfinished, concealed facings worked in Shelter offer structure and stability, and directions are given for sewing twill tape along the shoulder and collar seams to prevent them from stretching out of shape. Pockets, also knit in Shelter to diminish their bulk, add the perfect functional touch and a cozy collar grows from the front edges to wrap behind your neck.
