I keep wanting to type that as “Windowpain Coat.”
Pattern: Windowpane Coat by Deborah Newton, from Interweave Knits Fall 2008. Click here for my Ravelry project page.
Yarn: Rowan Soft Tweed in Sprig, 18 skeins (1588 yds/1432 m). Soft Tweed is a discontinued yarn, thus no linkage. Although you can’t really tell from the pictures, the color is a soft grey-green.
Needles: US 7 (4.5mm) for the ribbing, US 9 (5.5mm) for everything else. Addi Circs.
Satisfaction with finished project: Pretty happy! There are some problems with the coat, as noted on my project page. It’s a tad too big through the shoulders and armholes. My narrow frame will do that every time. (Yes, I’m “large” but I have a small frame, which makes finding clothes that fit me an adventure in perseverance.) The buttonholes aren’t centered in the buttonband, which I can’t believe I didn’t notice while I was knitting them. But these are relatively minor imperfections, and no one but me will even care. Overall, it fits, it feels good, and it will be ever so warm come winter. Woo hoo!
