Swing Coat

This is a great coat for cool weather! Its flared silhouette skims nicely over the hips, so it flatters many different body types. It’s worked from the bottom up in pieces, with side shaping and a shaped back gusset, then sewn together. The sweater was worked at a slightly tighter gauge than the yarn called for, which gives it more body – a good thing in a coat.

The Chevron Rib pattern is presented in charted format.
