Notes

For whole 2 months, I had been looking for suitable texture for my winter coat. When I saw this pattern, I simply fell in love with it!

Oct 2: I am using double starnd to create super thick fabric for my winter coat. In addition, the herringbone texture adds additional thickness, which is perfect for this purpose. Gauge on US needle #10 is 4”X4” = 18Rx 20sts

I don’t have a pattern for my coat and I am simply using increases and decreases from the gauging. I have separately made a top-down skirt part. I am also knitting the bodice from top-down (a new technique for me).

Nov 4: Custom leather place attached trimming and leather embellishments. The coat was lined with batting, which made it really warm and thick. Simply love it!
