Swing Coat

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Harlequin Coat Link to website or photo trendsetteryarns.com/ssd_patterns.asp What are you most proud of? It fit my client perfectly. This jacket was made in a way that once done it can't be adjusted for fit. I changed the give across the back and chest to a little looser fit without changing the over all dimension by changing needle size. I put about 200 hours into this project and it turned out perfectly. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have checked your measurements for your body and make sure you make a gauge swatch! They are both critical. There is a little room here as it' is an outer garment but you still want it to be as perfect as possible. But a wrong gauge adds up quickly for disaster.
