A Chevron of Mitres, styled into a slight A line

Jane has created this stunning coat with just a touch of A line shaping, which allows flow over the hip but still brings with it a neat fit, like a jacket, over the shoulders.

Design: Coco A line Coat

Instructions:
Mitres are so simple and so rewarding: they're just stripes in garter stitch with a simple decrease. There are no seams in the body of the garment, except for the shoulder seams! The Coco A line has a variegated fine 5ply yarn, combined with 7 colours in Signatur Pure New Wool, this combination creates a fabric that will softly drapes.
Starting from one Mitre square, stitches are picked and cast on from one mitre to the next. The body is knitted from a diagram which shows the sequence in which to work the mitres. The sleeves are knitted with a centre panel of mitres and the sides are shaped for a fitted sleeve.


Technique: Mitre
