Beautiful job on the Einstein coat. I have ordered the book by Sally Melville with the pattern in it, but her pattern looks as though it comes with a collar, which I do not like. I love the neck on yours--did you just not form the collar on yours, or did you alter the pattern? I only want to make it if I can omit the collar.
Hi Knitter4668 - the pattern does include for a small collar which is done at the end by picking up stitches around neck once the shoulders are sewn up, but it is a matter of choice. This coat was made for my SIL and he didn't want a collar. Happy Knitting when your book arrives.
