Marita's coat is all about the sleeves... when she saw the sleeves she just had to have it! So she bought the yarn, Lion Brand super-chunky "Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in the wheat color, and I knitted it for her as a birthday gift even though I hate knitting with acrylic. I will admit that the price for the yarn was great but I did NOT enjoy knitting with it.
The pattern is called Long Coat designed by Pierrot and it is a Vogue pattern. I tried to find which issue it came from but I never did figure it out. She copied it from a friend's old magazine and gave it to me with the yarn. I like the pattern and it was easy to knit. I may make it again for myself in a larger size in alpaca and add some big patch pockets. The alpaca would be heaven to knit with and I think that along with the larger size would give the garment better drape.
Marita loves her coat and that makes me very happy :)
