The Elizabeth Zimmermann Coat by Schoolhouse Press #51


Sold Out

We rediscovered a coat Elizabeth Zimmermann knitted in 1970. It featured an extraordinarily beautiful Queen Elizabeth style collar knitted in (as opposed to knitted on) and Elizabeth's invented phony seams. Cully adapted the pattern, and Meg knit the coat in our Rangeley wool. The updated version includes an A-line shape with visible decrease lines to create a paneled look, which is flattering on every body, in garter stitch with stocking stitch sleeves to slim the arms. The instructions include six sizes for two different weights of wool, plus variations for length and styling and EZs I-Cord Tab Buttonholes.
