CAL: Country Car Coat – Update

Country Car Coat - Stitch PatternSometimes it is important to think of a pattern as a road map – you know where you want to go in the end, but you come to realize that you have to deviate from the charted course in order to get there. This has been the case for me with the Country Car Coat.

This evening I finished my version of the Left Front piece. I must admit that I am pleased with the product thus far. The Left Front lines up well with the Center Back (see the two pieces pinned together in the pictures below) and I do hope this is going to be a beautiful sweater when I am all done. Keep your fingers crossed!

As promised, I am including my notes because I had to make several adjustments and liberal interpretations to the pattern for the raglan armhole shaping. I hope it’s helpful. Smile Happy Stitching!
