Architectural stitchwork juxtaposed with fluid volume sets this dramatic coat apart. Short rows above the back hem create a beautiful bell curve to lengthen the canvas for a bold panel of forked cables offset by a waffled motif of ridges and furrows. Decreases within the ribbed collar anchor the piece about the shoulders, and bands of double rib finish the open fronts. Sleeves patterned in garter rib meet exaggerated drop shoulders for further textural interest. Worked in Shelter, Belfast is both elegant and supremely cozy.
