Winter Wonderland Coat

Happy New Year from snow covered Boston!

Watching snow falling quietly, I was sewing up Winter Wonderland Coat yesterday, the very last project of 2008.

It turned out relatively light as it required about 3.5 skeins of Cascade Ecological Wool and the gauge was right on target with the specified needle size. Initially, I was not that sure of the yarn choice and I began knitting sleeves first. It turned out to be a good decision as I had to rip all the way to the beginning once. My tension was too loose and I was making mistakes all over the place. Overall, knitting was fun. I realized how I love cable and lace patterns. I also love the front dip and collar shaping. One thing I am not happy about is the flimsiness of the front bands. I am planning to attach petershams which I placed an order from The Sewing Place. Hopefully, it will do the trick.


  1. This coat is a favorite of mine from the book Inspired to Knit! Yours turned out spectacular!! I LOVE It!

    Happy New Year, May!

  2. Beautiful! And it fits you very nicely. Well done!

  3. Very pretty! I think the petersham ribbon will do the trick. This is the second pattern from Inspired to knit that I see and love, I must get the book!
