This elegant fantasy-inspired sweater coat features an A-line silhouette with a curling, pointed geometric hem shape inspired by flower blossoms, delicate pointed bell sleeves, and of course a long and ample pointed elf hood. The variegated yarn creates dazzling prisms of color across the separately worked pieces of the coat.

Featuring Tunisian crochet in a stitch that mimics knitting, the texture and weave of this coat is both sleek and warm. The tunisian technique creates a tightly constructed fabric that drapes nicely while also holding a tailored shape that fits and flatters.

This pattern is available for FREE on my blog in 5/6 adult sizes: Small, Medium, Large, XL, and 2XL/3XL, as well as being available as a purchasable, ad-free PDF that includes detailed instructions for all sizes. For more information, see: https://moralefiber.blog/2020/08/20/elf-coat-faq/

Lots of inspiration for this came from recycled sweater artist Katwise, and you should definitely check out her website at www.katwise.com !

Bust: ~50″, 57”
Hip: ~56″, 64”
Sleeve: 22″ (measured armpit to hem), 22”
Length: ~40″

Sizing Notes: This pattern is based on the number of wedges in the skirt, making 15 wedges (7 pointed, 8 simple) for the XL size, and 17 wedges (8 simple, 9 pointed) for the 2XL size. Please note that due to this incremental difference between all sizes (2 extra skirt panels per each size up) means that the Plus Sizes are actually oversized. This is why 3XL is included under 2XL – the 2XL is already bigger than the 3XL’s standard measurements based on this sizing system. Please be sure to measure your actual body size and compare to the measurements given for each size to determine which size to make. Bigger coats can also be adjusted to fit using the optional corset back lacing and belt tie additions included in this pattern.
Some parts of the pattern include areas where lengthening or shortening is an option (the bottom of the front & back panels, the height of the waistband, and the crochet trim). Please be aware that if you need the coat length adjusted these options are available!
