Crochet Winter Coats - Charts and so Much More
Personally I am a fan of everything fashionable, although one could say I am into a sporty chic style as clothing goes.
This being said I must admit that my favorite thing about fall - winter 2013/2014 fashion is the fact that we must have a statement winter coat.
So what is a statement coat. Trends call for checkerboard patterns, splendid color blocking, amazing accessories and fabulous look. Altogether we can say that this is the crochet passionate haven.
There are so many coats out there that you can turn into a statement winter coat but most definitely you can dare and wear s fabulous crochet patter just for the sake of being absolutely unique in a sea of retail clothing.
Are these coats difficult to make ?
Well...they are not easy since most of them are long and look better if they are lined so they will be a bit "stiffer" . However, you should not panic.
Here are my tips :
1. Look for a thick yarn, preferably wool or wool mixed with acrylic.
2. Be aware that size of the hook should one size smaller than the one recommended for the yarn size.
3. Follow the instructions and measure yourself as you complete the work.
4. Consider flowers, Irish lace decorations and furry embellishments to make the coat look unique.
