Knitted Coat Vintage Pattern – Hayfield Yarn

Standard

Pink Striped Matinée Coat

Matinee Coat

Finally finished this awesome matinée coat. I posted about the yarn previously. Here are some images of the coat close up. Not sure if I shall do the bonnet yet but I will probably do the mittens soon.

The King Cole pattern used is pictured below. It just shows you can make an old pattern really modern with great choice of yarn. I was really pleased that this knitted up as stripes as I have a fixation with stripes. Can’t get enough!

Can’t wait to gift this to my niece.

Hayfield yarn – Bonus Fantasy dk – How it knits up

Awesome Stripes

Hayfield - Bonus Fantasy DK

I wanted to share with you this awesome double knitting yarn. I wanted something that would be interesting to knit so I chose this ball of wool. To my delight it knits up really great with the pattern I have.

The pictures below show you my progress. I will be posting the finished pieces at a later date. I have a coat, bonnet and mittens to complete.

Choosing a more interesting yarn has kept me focused on this long term project. Don’t be put off by how many colours are in this. Definitely will try multi-coloured yarns again!
