Big old grey coat!

This design is my favourite piece from Joji's  Authentic collection.
cozy, oversized sweater coat in worsted weight.  I knitted it with uncommon thread lush worsted in 'cumulonimbus'- grey with some random blue and dark blue spots.

It feels really comfy, springy and warm. I loved knitting it , the basket weave pattern is flowing effortlessly together with the ribbed shawl collar.

Here is a close up of the stitch detailing;

I chose a shorter version (6 skeins exactly), which is more versatile and flattering to me. I finished the sleeves with a small ribbed hem and tubular cast off. I like my sleeves' hem secure onto my wrists.

very, very pleased with it, knit one you won't regret it just make sure you've got enough yarn.
