Brooklyn 2

This will surely keep you warm!  Introducing Brooklyn 2, spawned from my previous Brooklyn design, but single breasted this time and a good bit longer.  This Garter stitch car coat is worked flat from the top down with A-line shaping to its hem.  Color blocking on its bodice, occurring slightly higher than its middle, is balanced by that of its stand-up, buttoned-up collar, created from stitches picked up along the neckline.  Sleeves are worked top down, seamed and set in, with a photo tutorial included to ensure a positive result.
