It’s finally time! The instructions for the Elf Coat, including all three adult sizes (Small, Medium, and Large) and the tutorial for the corset back lacing is all gathered and published in one downloadable, printable, ad-free PDF!
I’m so grateful for everyone that has supported and followed my work ❤ I really couldn’t feel more blessed, having had so many people give me kind words, feedback, and of course pictures of the awesome things they’ve made!
ONE quick answer to a question a lot of people have asked – what about more sizes? The answer is that I will probably EVENTUALLY write more sizes for the Elf Coat such as XL and YA/Kids sizing, but for now I am going to take a much needed break from working on this pattern 🙂 I’ve been laboring over it for literal years, and though I love this design as one of my most precious brain children, I need to work on other things for a while. You can see what I’m up to by liking and following my Facebook Page or find out what others are making with my designs by joining the MF crochet group, the Magic Fantastic Crochet Atelier!
(UPDATE 4/21: The Elf Coat Plus Size pattern is now drafted and being tested by an awesome team of pattern testers! Hopefully it will be ready to be released by late summer / early fall!)
And now, read on for the pattern spiel!
This elegant fantasy-inspired sweater coat features an A-line silhouette with a curling, pointed geometric hem shape inspired by flower blossoms, delicate pointed bell sleeves, and of course a long and ample pointed elf hood. The variegated yarn creates dazzling prisms of color across the separately worked pieces of the coat.
Featuring Tunisian crochet in a stitch that mimics knitting, the texture and weave of this coat is both sleek and warm. The Tunisian technique creates a tightly constructed fabric that drapes nicely while also holding a tailored shape that fits and flatters.
Lots of inspiration for this came from recycled sweater artist Katwise, and you should definitely check out her website at www.katwise.com !
