If you were on a cold and misty coast with the wind whipping across the dunes, you’d be lucky to be wearing Brandi Cheyenne Harper’s Sea Sweater Coat! With a big, cozy collar that seconds as a hood, this duster-style cardigan incorporates Brandi’s signature attention to fabulous details. These also include gentle A-line shaping for a flattering fit, as well as clever knit-in pockets to keep your hands toasty and to store your walkabout essentials. Brandi’s construction is just as considered. In her bottom up, seamless design, raglan shaping creates a decisive yoke, short rows form a dramatic hood, and the I-cord edging is knit right in as you go. The yarn that amplifies all this beauty is our wonderfully big and squishy Woolly Wool. A lovely single ply of 100% wool in a world of soft heathery colors, it knits up in flash and also keeps you as cozy as a sheep gazing out at a blustery sea! Use the color Sea Turtle like Brandi did for a perfect green-blue balance!
