Comfy Crochet House Coat

Comfy Crochet House Coat - Pops de Milk

I’ve decided. The cardigan/robe/kimono I’ve been working on is now a crochet comfy house coat. I wear it when the weather gets a little chilly or when I just want to feel cosy but not overheated. With its cotton-y softness this house coat is perfect.

Like I mentioned in the first WIP post, I kind of made the pattern up as I went along and at some point I started writing instructions down and then stopped. But after quite a bit of head scratching and counting I was able to figure out what I did by just looking over the finished piece. This pattern is quite simple and easy to customize to fit different sizes so stitch count is not important. The one I’ve made would fit a hip size 36″-40″ with a length of 38″ from shoulder to bottom edge.

Materials

-worsted weight cotton yarn in colour of choice, I used about 600 grams/21 oz or 975 metres/1,066 yards

-size 6.50mm and 9.00mm crochet hooks

Repeat Row 2 until piece measures back hip width eg. 20″ or 60 rows.
