Misty Pocket Coat

This coat is designed to be classic and simple in style, with just enough decorative detail in the form of faux piping. Large size buttons and oversized patch pockets also make a fashion statement, as well as being functional. The Aereo yarn used in the pattern is very light and airy, making this garment warm but not heavy. Using a solid neutral color will make this coat a timeless piece you will enjoy wearing for many seasons.

Pattern Notes

The coat is worked in pieces, starting with the patch pockets, which also serve as a gauge swatch. Simple 2-stitch repeat of the Linen Stitch pattern is completely reversible, and easy to follow for incorporating any shaping necessary for the pattern. The pieces are sewn together with fingering weight yarn or embroidery floss to reduce bulk in the seams using a backstitch. Finally, a surface crochet chain in contrasting color is used to attach the pockets as well as to add a decorative faux piping.
