Car Coat Using Brooklyn Tweed Quarry

Car Coat Using Brooklyn Tweed Quarry





The Design


In handsome, dense, double moss stitch, this cozy outerwear classic is a little retro, a little ‘Audrey.’ Three quarter length sleeves and a folded, stand-up collar—and the option to add generous pockets—give it a tailored finish. Dropped shoulders and straight sleeves allow room for comfy layering. The universally flattering length brings to mind the favorite duffle or pea coat.

For a Car Coat with a bit of a rustic touch, we chose chunky-weight Brooklyn Tweed Quarry. This yarn’s tweedy flecks add even more brilliant texture to this piece’s fabric! Quarry is 100% Wyoming-raised, Targhee-Columbia wool with a roving-style strand. Though it looks like a singles strand, it’s actually three unspun plies of wool twisted together. The knit fabric is lightweight, has good stitch definition, and softens nicely after hand-washing.
