When Berroco first presented their lineup of new yarn for fall, I immediately gravitated towards Mochi and Artesia. While they both work up beautifully alone, some yarns just belong together!
I was inspired to create something quick & simple that would feel as if you were wearing a cozy blanket, without looking like you were wearing one! After many false starts, I finally realized the perfect project was buried in our pattern archives.
Nearly fifteen years ago mom created a clever Flip Coat, worked with a lightweight mohair. I decided to use Mochi and Artesia double stranded, bumped up the gauge, and out popped the new & improved Cozy Flip Coat.
What is really cool about this coat is you can wear it as a long coat with a narrow collar, or FLIP it over and it transforms into a short jacket with a wide collar. Two looks, one project! The light & lofty Mochi, combined with Artesia hand dyed mohair, creates a lightweight and airy fabric. You will love wearing this coat!

We have put together a great tutorial illustrating techniques used in the Cozy Flip Coat including the crochet cast on, sewing a flat garter seam, and how to pick up and knit. This coat is simple enough for a beginner to make!
