HIp Hop Coat - Ann Budd
The texture and color of the yarn in this coat provide plenty of interest, so Ann Budd chose to work the full-length design in easy stockinette stitch with a bold ribbed trim. The deep hand-warming pockets are worked along with the body, then a lining is added and whipstitched to the inside. THe high collar can be folded down or left standing. Big bright buttons are an essetnial accent that offer practical closure.
