Knit the Cuddle Coat for those winter mornings when it’s cold and snowy outside…wake up and snuggle back into bed. Wear this sweater over your pajamas so you don’t have to get dressed, or wear it with your clothes and head out for the day! Worked in pieces, with any bulky weight yarn that knits at 3 stitches to the inch, this is an easy pattern for a knitter’s first sweater.

Oversized, with drop shoulders, this coat is not burdened with buttonhole plackets or ribbing to add bulk. No tight shapes or constraints…. Close this sweater with a flexible number of buttons from 1-6, three-quarters of the way across your bust, for a slightly off-set look. At the neckline, you can button up tight against the chill or unbutton the top button for a folded over triangle. This coat will give you a cuddle when you need it and turn the thermostat down a little.

Accessibility Note: This pattern offers an additional Low Vision pdf option, with Arial 24 point font and photo captions, for those who need large print.
