Blue Skies Trench

I love knitting coats, this one is done with two shades of solid blue, knitted using the linen stitch which is achieved with slip stitches. I love the edged pockets, front, collar, and sleeve bands in the darker blue hue. This project is 100% acrylic. Due to the nature of the shape of the coat being narrow at the hem, the acrylic works. Due to the acrylic, the coat is feather-light to wear for Spring. A real ‘feather in its cap’ is when the weather changes, it is easy to drape over your arm. So, this garment is an example that fiber of all kinds can work if paired with the right pattern.
