This ladies knit coat sewing pattern is the perfect blend of cardigan and coat. The Carli is soft and drapey like a cardi, and shaped at the waist with darts and an optional belt like a coat.
This pattern features a high neckline and no side seams which highlight the lovely, flowy waterfall collar.
The Carli Coatigan is a super comfy, loose-fitting mixture of everything you need for the ultimate casual cover up for cooler weather.
Skill Level – Beginner
Sizes – Pattern includes ladies’ sizes XXS to 5XL. See the size chart in the gallery above.
Options – Two lengths: mid-thigh and mid-calf, optional patch pockets, belt, and belt loops.
Ideas – Use a light and breezy fabric for a nice and airy cossie cover up for summer!
Fabrics – The Carli Coatigan can be made from stretch/ knit fabric. It can be any weight, however best results and fit will be achieved with a medium-weight two-way stretch. Sweater knits, jersey, stretch fleece, and stretch French terry are great examples. Warmer and heavier fabrics such as hacci knits, stretch wool, and interlock will result in a snugger fit and cosier look.
If you use a fabric with a print or nap such as velvet, remember to cut all pieces in the same direction and to allow extra fabric for this.
See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.
Format – This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.
