Wrap up in this stylish knee-length raglan sweater coat. The all-over rib lends body and warmth to the garment, and the wide collar and tie belt add panache. Jiffy gives it warmth without weight.

Knit Trendy Sweater Coat

Lion Brand« Jiffy®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 17 rows = 4" (10 cm) in k 1, p 1 rib. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Downloadable Pattern: Knit Trendy Sweater Coat Reviewed by Lalania Mueller on 2008-12-13 ****
I absolutely love the coat I made from this pattern! I used the El Paso print, so it took a couple extra skeins, but it was so worth it. I also used some nice wooden toggle type buttons on mine and I never use the belt. It's very warm and not too heavy.
