CHILD'S FOX COAT
CHILD'S FOX COAT 

Knit Simple Magazine Holiday 2013 #8

Design by Stacey Gerbman

A sly design conceals this coat’s foxy nature—until the creature-feature hood is pulled up. The pockets and contrast back border are worked first, then folded and joined to the body; the eyes are duplicate-stitched and finished with decorative buttons. The tweedy yarn lends woodsy charmto forest-friend fashion.
