The Amber Leafy Coat Kit includes the Early Fall 2019 issue of Vogue
Knitting Magazine and all of the Donegal Tweed yarn needed to knit this stunning
The Amber Leafy Coat is the winning design from the Donegal Tweed 50th
Anniversary Design Contest and it’s easy to see why—this is most definitely a
bucket list knit! This two-color coat is worked from the top down in one piece
and is adorned with breathtaking leaf patterns formed with increases and decreases
within the brioche stitches. The sleeves feature scaled down versions of the
body patterns with the colors reversed, making the entire piece textured and intriguing.
And just when we were sure we couldn’t love this design any more, we noticed
the integrated pockets! A deeply ribbed shawl collar gives this garment a
beautiful finish and adds to its cozy warmth as well. The only seaming in this
project is sewing the pocket linings and edgings in place, and then you have a timeless,
wearable showpiece that will last you for years to come.
Please note: The original Dark Color yarn used in this design, #902 Charcoal, has been discontinued and is no longer available. We have substituted #875 Mushroom as the Dark Color in this kit, please click on the arrows at the sides of the main photo to see the yarn colors you will receive.
