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.

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!

You can pick up stitches along the edge and work 2-3 rows of garter stitch instead of crocheting.

That line means to continue to knit without any decreases.

Thank you! I eventually figured it out and the coat is adorable - my niece will love. Already gave her the matching had and she was delighted.! :)

Hi Marian,
I've tried to look up the conversion to overseas yarns. It was very confusing.
The yarn suggested is a US #3 weight. According to the packaging, knitted on 4 mm needles, 22 stitches for 28 rows should give you a 10x10 cm square.
I hope this helps.

I made this coat for my granddaughters doll, it was simple and easy to make and came out great. I am not an expert knitter by any means! It came out adorable and the instructions were simple to follow!

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.

It would be helpful for overseas knitters if the approximate ply of the yarn was mentioned. we might not have the brand, but could match it with an alternative make if we know the ply.

I made this as a first knitting project and couldn't believe how good it looked! Much more fun than the endless boring scarves that I could never finish.

I'm a fairly experienced knitter. I'm not having any trouble following the pattern. My only issue is that I'm using the size needles you suggest, and my coat is coming out much larger than the one in the photo. I will need to do a little "fixing" to get it to fit my 18" doll well, but it will be cute. Thanks!! :)

I have made this coat and hat twice, I have had no problem just have to read the pattern and think about it. It is written differently but it works just fine.

With the "Right Front" instructions at the end where it says to "shape neck hole line in the 69th cast off 2 sts once, 71st row 1 st once". Then says to "continue for 11 rows" - does that mean to continue casting off every other row or to knit 11 rows? I assumed it meant to continue the casting off and I ran out of stitches. Thank you!

I loved this coat. The only part I had trouble with was sewing the pieces together because I am not skilled at doing this yet.

Next I'm going to atempt to knit the matching hat.

It is very confusing. How do you attach the fun fur do it knit it on or sew it?

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

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.
