The Big Blue Sweater

Pattern: Textured Coat from Interweave's Knitscene Fall/Winter 2005

Yarn: Tahki/Stacy Charles Baby Tweed (92% wool, 8% viscose)

Modifications: Knitted the body in one piece and the sleeves in the round. Three needle bind-off at the shoulders, collar approx. twice as long as called for.

Comments: Loved the pattern, very pleased with the effect of the modifications. This is a snug fitting coat which extends well down over the hips, so choose sizing with care (ie. to fit your largest circumference, which in my case, was not the bust.)
