Isis Tailcoat Knitting Pattern
This tailcoat is very flattering, accentuating the hour glass figure (even if you don't have one!). Fabulous as outerwear for the autumn or spring, lovely and warm as a cardigan for winter. Techniques used in this pattern includes blackberry stitch, short row shaping and picking up stitches.
A delighted Agata says: “I just finished it! It was my first sweater in my whole knitting life! Your designs are wonderful. The size a perfect fit.”
