Edwardian Day Coat

Knitting
November 2008
Worsted / 10 ply (9 wpi) ?
1971 yards (1802 m)
40 (43, 46.25, 50.25)" / 101.5 (109, 117.5, 127.5) cm chest circumference

Soft, comfortable, long coat in Cable and Rib pattern, knitted from a chart. Seed stitch button bands, borders, and notched collar complete the look. Lower body is worked in one piece to the armholes; then back and fronts are divided and worked separately to the shoulders. Sleeves are worked in the round from cuffs upward, then attached to the body by binding off live sleeve sts together with sts picked up around the armhole opening, using three-needle bind-off method.

Sizing Notes: The jacket is loose fitting (4-6” / 10-15 cm of ease). The size of the jacket is determined by the needle size - the larger sizes are made using larger needles. For this reason, doing a gauge swatch is very important!
