Rock Star Coat: FREE knitting pattern



I am happy to introduce – Rock Star Coat, a free knitting pattern. Instructions are written for eight different sizes, and it’s easy to adjust the pattern to your specific needs: make the yoke deeper, add more space for the body, make longer sleeves. Hope you enjoy!

Made with cozy fluffy yarn
 Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue

Rock Star Coat is worked seamlessly in rounds from the top down. First some short rows are worked back and forth to shape the neck. Raglan increases are then worked to the final yoke depth. The yoke is divided for body and sleeves (stitches for sleeves are placed on hold), and from this point the lower body is worked in rounds to the lower ribbing. Sleeve stitches are picked up again to work the sleeves in rounds down to the cuffs (the sleeves are designed for ¾ length, and have no decreases). A bigger ease is recommended for sleeves due to the fluffy yarn. Then a collar is worked along neck opening.

SLEEVES

Note: it is highly recommended to use BOR marker for sleeves, even though they have no decreases. Furry Tales is a very fluffy yarn, and BOR marker will help to keep accurate row count for both sleeves.

[25 (27, 27, 28, 30, 33, 35, 37) sts for a sleeve]

Knit in the rounds until sleeve measures approx. 1” (2.5cm) before ¾ of the arm length (approx. 15”/38cm). Dec one st on the last round by working k2tog, then proceed to ribbing.

Ribbing
