Inspired by the coats worn by Jane Austen's military characters—like the despicable Wickham—the Meryton Coat is a feminine and modern take on the Regency era. A simple allover stranded pattern is an excellent backdrop for beautiful finishing details such as I-cord piping and mitered corners on edgings. Knitting in the round with steeks, this piece is challenging because it requires attention to detail, but the result is a garment worthy of wear at Pemberley.
