Make a sweeping statement in this dramatic long coat with an innovative notched collar in cartridge rib. The fronts are cut away from hip to hem to swing freely open, and the drop shoulders create just a touch of detail at the narrow sleeves. The body is worked flat in three pieces and seamed; stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armholes and knit in the round to the cuffs. The collar and lower front extensions are picked up and knit after assembly. In woolen-spun Shelter, Corvid moves beautifully without weighing you down.
