FO: Amended Debbie Bliss Coat

Now here’s something that I made nearly a year ago, and something that actually took me quite a while. It was for a friend from Australia, she ordered it for her little girl. It’s the Debbie Bliss hooded coat that I made for Luke in green. I also made another version in the same colour for another friend. However, this version was in what was meant to be a plum/purple, but the colour on the website versus what I got was a bit different, it turned out to be more of a maroon colour.

To be honest, this is the first time that I’ve really done this and I probably went way too big with my adjustments. And I kept thinking this when I was making the hoodie. But better too big than to small, right?

AA 3I added some lovely flower buttons that I had in my stash and the colour matches the hoodie perfectly.

AA 4This pattern is a very easy pattern, but it’s probably one of the more boring patterns I’ve knitted as it’s just rows and rows of garter stitch.

  1. Ha ha! That’s lovely. I really like the look of lots of Debbie Bliss baby garments, but I agree, they are often really boring to knit! I’ve just looked at your Ravelry page…… my word, you have been busy!!! Really pretty projects! Ros

  2. eep! she looks so cute in her big girl coat!

    great job anna!! and i love those buttons – you’re right, they’re perfect!!

  3. I really love this coat and I love the buttons. They really make the coat. I love things knitted in garter stich with cute buttons, that just add that special touch.
