Venus Full Length Coat
The Venus coat is inspired by the ‘empire line’ in costume history, the skirt of the coat flows from the bust line into a fabulous flared skirt. The body is knitted in one piece (so there are no side seams) and the neckband and button edging is included within the rows and lace knit pattern. Venus is an interesting knit for the more experienced and accomplished knitter. Venus can be made shorter without losing shape by reducing the number of rows knitted in each tier.
