If you are budgeting your monthly expenses and most of your money is set aside to pay bills, you may be looking for inexpensive activities. Learning to crochet can be a very fulfilling hobby that will barely affect your finances because the cost of yarn is very low. Crocheting can also help you save more money on gift expenses. This doll coat, for example, would make a perfect child's birthday present which will certainly help with your budgeting.

I made this for my granddaughter for her birthday. It came out beautiful! Some directions were a little fuzzy but if you re-read them they all make sense. I liked having the row counts. Everything matched up perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Do you have similar coat or any winter outfit in a crochet pattern? I love this one but do not knit

Hi I tried knitting this pattern, are you sure you did not mean to increase instead of decrease in the very beginning, I don't know how you obtain the 48sts when your decreasing from 38? Please explain. Thank you.

Re-read the direction- it says 48 ROWS, not sts! the pattern decreases to shape the back into the shoulder area and works out perfectly.

It does not mention 48 stitches. The 48 is the row count at that point.

I see how this is confusing. I interpret it to mean after decreasing continue to knit until you've established 48 rows.

This pattern needs to written again as it is very confusing. There is more than one mistake I gave up on it.

Has anyone successfully made this coat following the pattern as it is written? I am not an excellent knitter, and I won't be able to figure it out if there are errors in the pattern. I really want to knit it for my grandgirls. Lu

I finished this with difficulty - I found I had to re-read the words many times to understand. It would be helpful if there were stitch counts after the dec. The fuzzy stuff is crocheted, I think you could adapt by casting on w/fuzzy then changing to the yarn. Or pick up & knit. I did only one round of single crochet. it's done!
