Here is my new wool sweater coat:
|Burda Style 111 from the 3/2014 issue|
Many people do not like loose garments, so the coat can be belted to define the waist. The faux fur hat is from the 12/5/14 post 'A New Fur Hat.'
The collar and cuffs are a heavyweight knit purchased from Wawak at http://www.wawak.com/products/search.cfm?KEYS=KNt-10&x=0&y=0. The quality of the knit is wonderful, and the price is reasonable.
For the collar, I actually took the heavy-duty waistband (item KNT-12, $4.85) and cut a 4.5" x 18" collar. The edges of the collar are unfinished.
Below is a comparison of the heavy-duty knit cuffs (on the left, $2.95 per pair) and the regular knit cuffs (on the right, $1.75 per pair). Both are excellent quality and would have worked in my sweater coat.
The cuffs, collars and waistbands are packaged so neatly.
Color choice is beige, black, brown, navy or white. I definitely recommend these products for use on knit garments.
