I have wanted to knit this jacket/coat for a long time now, ever since my mom knitted hers 2 years ago. I wanted to do a test run so I was lucky that she had loads of chunky wool she didn’t want anymore.
The pattern is worked in double moss stitch so it’s textured and warm, I also like the A line shape and bell shaped sleeves. Here’s a link to the book/pattern
I’m showcasing my new bobble hat in the photos too, it’s from the same pattern I made the square hats in my last post.
Here is photographic proof!
I will be looking for some wooden buttons to tie it all together, 3 on the front and 1 on each sleeve.
I wore this today and my hairdresser wants a longer version this jacket, which is great! I’m a fast knitter so I’m always looking for something new to do (this took me between 2-3 weeks to make) and I want to make a purple version for myself too.
I should start on sewing a jacket at some point, one step at a time!
