Stepping Out Coat

This is the Stepping Out Coat pattern from Hip To Knit. I rewrote the pattern based on my gauge using the "Gauging a Reaction" section of Stitch 'n Bitch Nation starting on page 13. I used Schoeller Stahl Volare Mouliné, which I purchased from My gauge was 10 1/2 stitches per 4 inches, where the pattern called for 7 stitches per four inches. It was relatively simple to rewrite the pattern, it just took some time and patience. I used some buttons that my good buddy, Larry, sent me a while back for my closures. I did not knit button holes - I just use the open stitches of the ribbed front to poke the buttons through. I'm very pleased with the results - I love the yarn!
