Entrelac is an intermediate endeavor, however, I have supplied graphic schematics and clear instructions to ease the task. I knit it in 10 days, It really knits up faster than you would think. The pattern has notes to help you make larger (XL, XXL etc) sizes. Blocking for perfect fit encouraged.

The coat is knit in one piece, then the shoulders are seamed. The sleeves may be left out to make a long vest. (each sleeve takes a ball) and then edge the arms with the contrasting yarn used to finish the front.

I have to say, I love the fit of this coat so much, I want to wear it everyday. With Noro yarns, It goes with so much! Taiyo Aran is 40% Cotton, 30% Silk and 15% wool/ 15% Poly. The Tokanatsu is knit on a #8 48 - 60” needle in one long garter strip. if you make a vest, you will need a 16” long US8 also.
