Miss Scarlett

Ooh Love it!

Farrah

Beginner pattern—you’ll increase, knit and purl and do a few yarn overs and knit two togethers. That’s pretty much it.

Does that mean the stitches for the collar aren't picked up?

Marlena

I bought this pattern the instant I saw it was available! It has a great retro feel. I can't wait to wear it.

wendy

Farrah, you do pick up sts around the collar. I guess I consider that knitting.

deb

I love this jacket. I love that the buttons are off to one side, and that the front side overlaps the other side. It really does have a kind of contralateral flair.

:-)

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

LeAnne

So cool. I already have the fur collar, too, that I bought at a vintage store several years ago and have never worn because I didn't have anything to wear it with!

Sarah

This looks really fab and you made my day when you said it was beginner level. I wanted it whatever but hopefully now I can get it done all the quicker - off to shop for yarn. Thank you :)

Suzanne

I've ordered the pattern, received it and am thrilled. It is sassy yet elegant. I've done scarves, hats, socks, and a baby sweater. I am ready to move to my first sweater. I also have a wonderful knitting guru to help me if needed. I cannot wait to begin. It's lovely....

Alison

Where did you find the faux fur collar? I just purchased the pattern and am waiting for my payment to be processed. Beautiful.

Katherine

Thanks Wendy--another great pattern! I already have the yarn and I think the right buttons (we'll see). Since I'm home sick I guess I'll start knitting.

wendy

The collar came with a coat. I didn't buy it on its own.

Cathi

Damn you and your sailor jeans! I need a pair of those.

It was great meeting you at TNNA- if you ever need any help with sample/test knitting, let me know!

Joan

Yay! I bought it and I have some hot pink blue sky in the stash. This is why I love having a stash.

It reminds me a lot of everything they're doing at fashion week. I may need a charcoal grey one, too.

Emily

I feel wrong even commenting because I'm not a knitter. I visit your page often though, because I love to see what you've made and what you have to say. I'd like to link to you on my page if that's alright. It's just so much easier.

This jacket, by the way, is enough to make me start learning to knit. I can't tell you how much I love it.

Danielle

I love this jacket, sooner or later I'm gonna make one! Loooove it!

Danielle

Oh yeah Wendy, gotta say now more than ever... You could too be a model! See the good picture verses the bad picture(oatmeal, chicken nugget hat)When you can look that bad and then pull it together to look that good---well then you got it goin' on girl!I just had to come back and comment again on that, no seriously I really do love the swing coat!

Amy

That is just so darned cute! Love it!

The Steph

Wow! love, love, love, love, love, love, love! I'm taking a trip to a better city than the one in which I live, so I hope to get some blue-sky, which is OF COURSE not available where I live.... WILL have to break my knit-only-from-the-stash rule for this month! This is fabulous. And it looks rather simple? Just GREAT. I love Chuck, too. He should have his own myspace page. I would def. be his friend. :D

drh

Gorgeous!!! I'm an "ultra-beginner" knitter, but I'm going to try this. Thank you!

marcie

I LOVE this design. It is very classy, versatile, and chic.

Kristen

Love it! Wendy, I'm wondering if it still hangs as beautifully if you button just the top button? I'm picturing making mine with one giant button at the top, or maybe a vintage rhinestone pin instead of a button.

wendy

It is possible to put just one large button at the top, but I would suggest also placing a hidden button and loop on the opposite, inside neck, too so the overlap doesn't droop.

Cathy

FANTASTIC!!!! I love it!! Looks great!!

Lis

I love it! I love it! I love it! I love it! Now the only question is what color should I make it in??!!

ariane

OMG!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THAT...I NEED ONE:o)

miss you.
