A large houndstooth pattern in a fun yarn makes a big statement in this classic jacket. Knit in one piece to the arms, this coat has a simple silhouette that receives an updated look from the oversized colorwork pattern.

Help, I'm having difficulty knitting straight on the circular needles. It's the two colors. How do I work the houndstooth chart and knitt stright. Flipping the work isn't working out and I can't figure it out.
