Granny Square jacket...or it might be a coat

Added a few more squares yesterday at Knit and Natter
working the jacket/coat in two halves because it is a design in the making, I am deciding what size, length and shape I want as I go
Left a square out at the neck but it now has one in the back.
Basically a kimono Style.....
1: Tried a sleeve of 4 square width and a triagle under the arm first but that was too bulky
2: Second option was to make a wider kimono style sleeve with 6 squares. That works so far
3: The sleeve length will be next I think
4: Then the jacket/coat length
5: Then the width..wide and loose or a slimmer fit
6: Then the neckline and edging
Pop in for regular updates
Happy Hooking everyone x

  4. Love the way you are building this card / coat in stages - the Granny square blocks are just the right size I guess to be allow the right degree of flexibility for shaping. Can't wait to see the finished article! E x
