A flattering semi-fitted coat. Feather and fan panels with increasing width create flared sleeves and skirt. Knitted in an alpaca blend aran weight yarn, the coat is designed to be super-warm, with a slouchy hood for extra comfort.

Chart-reading skills are essential for this project as the stitch patterns for the cables and feather and fan panels are provided in chart form (ie - they are not written out).

The yardage given above covers the full size range (32-58 inch chests. You will require 13(14:15:15:16:17:17:18: 18:19:20:20:21:22) 100g skiens of aran weight yarn with 132 metres/144 yards per skein.

Skills required include twisted stitch cables (ie Bavarian cables), icord, picking up stitches, basic lace, purl decreases, provisional cast-on (underarm), kitchener stitch, and knitting in the round (for the sleeves).

The pattern is available individually, or as part of the ‘A Time To Knit’ collection.
