This coat is an example of a drop-shoulder cardigan that is worked in one piece from the lower body to the armholes; the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulders. It is worked in an allover cable pattern and features straight shoulders, a round neck, and tapered sleeves. The front bands and over-sized collar are worked separately and sewn in place.
