the Day Coat

I'm on a 'simplicity' kick. Trying to simplify things around here. It started with the Montreal and continues with my latest pattern. The Day Coat is very simple, 3 pieces sewn together and a collar, no shaping.. fat yarn and big needles (of course, so not only simple but quick!)

I was lucky enough to receive more Cadena l from Illimani Yarn, the Canadian yarn company based in Montreal. This alpaca/merino blend is such a pleasure to work with and the drape is amazing, just what you need for these oversized pieces.

The Day Coat uses approximately 539yds/492m (11 skeins) of Cadena l and US #19 (16mm) I would rate this as an easy pattern, good for an advanced beginner on up. It's a one size pattern but using the schematic and the notations included is easy to adjust if needed. 

Available as a PDF download. $6.50
