This coat is as cute as a mouse's ear! It uses Baby Blossom Chunky, a yarn that has been dyed so that it suggests the look of bands of Fair Isle flowers without the work. It is a chunky weight so it knits here at a speedy 3.5 stitches per inch. The body is stockinette with garter stitch accents at the the lower edge, cuffs, and neck. The back, fronts, and sleeves are knit flat from the bottom up and then joined. Stitches are picked up and worked for the neckband. Loops and buttons secure the front. The coat is sized for newborns to 7 years with finished chest measurements of 17.25 (19.34, 22, 24, 25.25 27.5)" and finished lengths of 9 (9.75, 10.75, 12, 13.5, 14.5)". Baby Blossom Chunky is made of 70% acrylic and 30% nylon fiber so it can be machine washed and dried flat.
