By the way, today is National Cat Day. My cat Ichi is expecting some major attention.
I had a few requests for information on the construction details of my coat. The fabric is just a single layer of wool so it’s perfect for fall in Colorado. It’s roomy so I will be able to wear a sweater underneath as it gets cooler.
Below is a detail of the collar and front closure. I found a cool button at my local yarn shop, The Loopy Ewe.
In this image you can see the decorative stitching that is holding the different colors of wool together with a butted joint. I used that wonderful presser foot with the metal blade down the middle. You can also see that not all of the wools are solid. The rusty-red has a subtle plaid.
