Jules is the full version of the pattern Lino’s coat as I’ve been asked so many times to adapt it to different sizes. It is also improved technically, with schematics, finishing details, an option for an i-cord edging, in a wide range of sizes and with a yarn/gauge that will allow easier yarn substitution.
This little cozy coat in garter stitch, will be the main piece of a baby’s outfit, should it be for your baby or as a gift to celebrate a little one’s arrival! It is worked sideways, from one sleeve to the other then sticthes are picked up around the neck to work the hood that is finished by a sweet tassel!
