Designer Notes—Theresa Belville
This swingy sweater coat reminds me of the dress-up coats my mom would buy for Christmas. I always felt like a princess in my fancy coat! The yoke is a simple garter stitch fancied up with ribbon and simple cross-stitch embroidery. Monkey’s fist buttons made with the same yarn complete the look and are easy for fast dressing of squirmy toddlers.
Knit from the top down, this garment is completely seamless. You will begin at the neck and work spaced increase rows for the yoke. Once the yoke is complete, you will split the sleeves from the body, and continue working the body to the bottom edge. You will then go back and complete the sleeves.
