The Coat.

Fine, it’s still Summer. But 100 degree weather makes me craveeeeee boots, coats, sweaters, and knitting. And while you might be vehemently opposed to beach knitting, it may be the only time to prepare your knitwear wardrobe in time for that cold air to arrive.

The knitted coat has been in style for years. But right now anything COAT is on the radar for Fall. Every designer from Derek Lam and Bottega Veneta to H+M and Forever 21 has morphed into Fall Ready To Wear with the long over-sized coat phenomenon. Just can’t get enough of this knee length, 3/4 sleeve, zippered, and buttoned craze.

But, with a little over 2 months until Autumn hits our doorstep, you have basically enough time to knit the newest blackstitch creation.

It’s hard to take this guy off when everyone stops you to ask you where you bought it, even the people at Vogue Knitting. But now you too, can have your very own on trend knitted coat for fall. Maybe even before Labor Day. It’s simple, uses the easiest form of Intarsia (colorwork knitting technique) and most importantly fashionable.
