Knitting Pattern A Winter Wedding Coat
The armholes in both sizes are a good 7cm/2.75” larger than standard sizes, so the coat has a kind of bat sleeves, which gives you the opportunity to wear a sweater underneath.
Also the chest circumference is oversized so that you don’t feel constricted in spite of the sweater.
The model shown is in the size S/M and several wonderful women from size XS to XL have already tried on the coat, but mostly without a sweater underneath, but it fitted everyone, with the larger sizes it was simply more a “fit” and with the smaller sizes an oversize
