Bespoke Knitted Coat Pattern
Originally published in Interweave Press’s No Sheep for You (out of print, but sometimes you can still find old copies on Amazon), the Bespoke jacket may seem like an intense pattern.
But don’t let the seemingly complicated half-linen stitch fool you. This is a fairly simple coat, with a lovely woven texture and a nice structure – perfect for cool autumn days!
