Very beautiful jacket with striped inside piping that can be turned over for an extra decorative effect. The base colours shift from a dark green at the bottom to a softer and lighter green at the top of the jacket, which makes it seems as though the birds are floating. The jacket is also available with burnt autumn colours for the birds and the leaves.

All coats with pattern knitting are worked on cirkular needle, then cut up and sewn. Following each pattern, there is a clear description for how the model is cut, sewn and finished.
When knitting with 2 colours, you "weave" the colour you are not using in every 2, 3, or 4 sts for in this way to avoid long strands on the back of the model. This tecchnique is called Fair Isle and is used when working in the round or (on rightside rows) when working back and forth.
The coat is knitted in lambswool on size 3.5 circular needles in 40 cm, 60 cm, 80 cm and 120 cm.
There is yarn enough in knitting kits for the biggest size. The needles are available in the webshop.
