Product description

Opulent cables take center stage in this luscious oversized sweater coat. Rowe is worked in pieces, beginning with a deep band of ribbing that gives way to richly cabled panels inspired by Celtic designs. The fronts and back are worked straight to the armholes without shaping; the sleeves are set in and then the cozy neckband and front ribbing is picked up and worked to double length so it can be folded and stitched down inside for extra warmth and structure.

Rowe is designed for lots of positive ease, so you can throw it on to dress up a casual outfit or use it in place of a coat when the weather is mild. Choose a neutral hue from the Shelter palette or make it a statement piece in a bold color like Long Johns or Hayloft.

The collar is worked to twice the desired length, and is then folded in half toward the inside, and joined to the pick-up row on the WS of the garment using a crochet hook. The collar stitches are bound off in the process.
