Car Coat Using Rowan Cocoon
Car Coat Using Rowan Cocoon
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 slightly 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 warm, robust Car Coat, we’ve picked chunky-weight Rowan Cocoon. Its roving-style strand highlights the intriguing texture of the double moss stitch. And Cocoon’s sturdy combination of merino and mohair is utterly snuggly—perfect for this handsome outerwear piece!
