Alternative coat pattern

Saturday, July 24, 2010

Hi everyone!

I've been making a few David Tennants recently
(and a Captain Jack - pattern here!) -> Jack coat variation coming soon (the below one is for david only)

While doing this I came across a difficulty when using slightly thicker wool for the coat. I often choose a nice sturdy yarn for the coat as this is the most huggable part, but it does cause issues when the thicker yarn makes the coat wider than the shoulder-to-shoulder width


So if the wool you are using for your overcoat is thicker than your body wool, you may like to use this version of the overcoat body pattern instead (creates a slight ribbing effect):
