Possibilities are endless with this coat. Below are some suggestions on how to make it larger or shorter.

You can make this Larger by adding more rows to the sides of the coat and to the sides of the arm. Try the coat and arms as you go to get the fit you like.
Also if you want this shorter when assembling the 3 strips of grannies for the back, stop at the 6th
granny and measure it from shoulder down. If you like how it fits continue with the pattern, making sure
page1image11592 page1image11752
you have 3 rows of your desired length and 2 for the front. Your side triangles will also be shorter as well. But continue with the pattern from the Side borders.
Example: you like the 6 granny length, you will make 3x6 for the back and 2-1x6 for the fronts. Assemble them like you would the 7 and continue on with the pattern.

Gauge:
Each Granny is about 6 inches

Instructions:
For this size coat, you will make 47 Grannies.
With your 5mm hook and yarn make a magic circle

Round 1: ch3 (counts as first dc), in the magic circle 2dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, sl st in ch3. 4 clusters of 3 dc. Pull the string from the magic circle closed.
Round 2: Ch3, in the ch1 space before the ch3 you just made work 2dc (you will do this for every round), in the next ch1 space work a corner cluster( 3dc, ch1, 3dc), repeat in the next 2 ch1 spaces, in the last ch1 space there will be 3 dc already, you will work 3dc and a ch1, sl st to the top of the ch3.
Round 3: Ch3, in the same space 2dc (first half of the first corner), *3dc in space between 3dc cluster from previous round, in the ch1 space of the corner work a corner cluster (3dc, ch1, 3dc)* Repeat *to* 2 more times, 3dc in space between 3dc cluster from previous round, in the last corner finish the second half of the cluster (3dc, ch1 ), sl st at the top of ch3.
Round 4-5: Repeat round 3, You will be increasing a 3dc clusters in between the corner clusters by 1 for every row. So round 3 has 1 3dc cluster, round 4 will have 2, and round 5 will have 3 clusters in between corner clusters. Fasten off and sew in loose tails.
When you have your 47 Grannies now it is time to assemble them. Refer to the Video Tutorial at the 14:13 minute mark.
Assemble the back first, you will need 21 grannies for this size. Laid out 7x3.


NOTE:
You will assemble all your grannies this way: Sl st in the loop that is closest to you on the first granny and through the loop that is furthest from you on the second granny. Matching stitch for stitch on both grannies.

With your Bone yarn and 5mm hook take 2 grannies right sides together, join in a ch1 corner. You will assemble 7 grannies, one on top of the other. Make 5 of these rows. 3 are for the back and 2 for the front.

You will now assemble 3 of the granny strips you made. Place them right sides together and Sl st along the 7 grannies making sure to match the st and picking up one st at each seam, repeat for the 3rd strip of grannies.

You will now assemble the hood, Assemble using the sl st like you have been doing so far. Making a 4x3 rectangle.
Refer to theVideo Tutorial at the 19:24 minute mark
Assemble 3 strips of 4 grannies, when those are together you will attach the 3 strips together just like you did for the back. Once your rectangle is done lay it right sides facing you 4 grannies across and 3 down, take the 2 corners from the top and bring them together. You will have 2 grannies on each side of your fold. Join your yarn in the ch1 corner and sl st as you have before across these grannies.
Put your Hood aside for now and now it is time to attach the 2 front strips with the back.

Attach the front with the back:
Refer to theVideo Tutorialat the 21:24 minute mark
With right sides facing, take the back and the front strips attaching one front strip to either side. From the shoulder edge you will join your yarn in the ch1 of the corners and sl st like you have been but only through 6dc, fasten off and repeat the same for the other side.


Side Border of your Coat:
With your 5mm crochet hook and your Bone yarn working the sides of your body, attach your yarn to the bottom of the back, with your right sides facing you, in the ch1 of your corner and you will:



Row 1: Ch3, *dc in each dc from your granny till you reach a seam, before the seam dc in the ch1 sp, dc in the ch1 sp in the next granny,* repeat form *to* all along the edge of your work, till you reach the bottom of your front.
Row 2: Ch3 and turn your work, BP dc in every dc across. Row 3: Ch3 and turn your work, FP dc in every dc across.
page4image10328   
Row 4-6: Repeat rows 2-3. Fasten off, hide all loose tails.
Repeat this for the other side, starting at the Front bottom ch1, right side facing you.
You can try on your coat now just to see how it will fit, if you want your coat to be larger here is where you will make your coat wider, just add extra side rows and be sure to end on a Row 2. Make the same number of rows for the other side as well.

Sleeves:
With your 4.5mm crochet hook, make 8 grannies like you did before stopping at the 4th round. Assemble 2 strips of 1x4 grannies the same way you have assembled before with your Bone yarn.
Once you are done attaching your strips for your sleeves you will now work on the sides just like you did for the side border of your coat.
With your 4.5mm crochet hook and Bone yarn join in a corner ch1 of your strip, with right sides facing you, working the long sides,
Row 1: ch3, *dc in each st till you reach your seam, 1dc in ch1 before the seam and 1dc in ch1 after the seam,* repeat *to* to the end of your sleeve.
Row 2: Ch3, turn your work, BP dc in each dc across.
Row 3: Ch3, turn your work, FP dc in each dc across.
Row4-12: Repeat rows 2-3 fasten off and repeat for the other side of your sleeve. Repeat this for the second sleeve.
If you need your sleeve to be larger just add more rows ending with a row 2. Making sure to make the same number of rows for each side of your sleeves.

Now it is time to assemble your sleeves to your coat.
Refer to the
Video Tutorial at the 31:07 minute mark for help.

page6image1840
What you want is the middle of the sleeve granny to line up with the shoulder seam. You can use some safety pins and pin your sleeve in place before you sl st it together. Making sure the right sides are facing each other when you sl st together. Join your yarn at the center of your sleeves granny and sl st the sleeve and coat together, then repeat for the other half of the sleeve. Do this once more for the second sleeve on the other side.
Now you will sew the waist of your coat and your sleeves, turn your coat wrong side out and lay it flat matching the front to the back.


Count down 3 grannies from the shoulder or 2 grannies from under the sleeve.
From there, with your 5mm hook, you will join your Bone yarn and sl st like you have, through the back loops, sl st up the side to the sleeve, then sl st along the side of the sleeve matching the st.
Fasten off and hide loose tails. Repeat for the other side.
You will have 2 side openings where your Triangle pieces will go to make your coat flare at the bottom.

Time to attach your Hood:
Refer to the Video Tutorial at the 36:23 minute mark.




Lay your coat, still wrong side facing you, on a flat surface. Take hood at the middle seam of the 4 grannies and you will match it with the middle st of the middle granny from the back. You will lay your hood wrong side facing you like so in the photo.



You will join your yarn in the middle st of your back granny and middle seam of your hood, working one half at a time, making sure you have wrong sides facing out and right sides facing each other. You can use safety pins to pin your hood to the back and front of your coat.
Sl st as you have done before stitching together your hood along the back and when you reach the end of the back. You will now attach your hood to the front, making sure your work is right side facing each other. If you need help refer to the Video Tutorial at the 38:33 minute mark.
You will repeat this for the other half of your hood.

Working on the inside border:

With your Bone yarn and 5mm hook, right sides facing you, join your yarn to the bottom corner,
Row 1: Ch3, *dc in each dc along the grannies, just before the seam, dc in the ch1 and right after the seam dc in the ch1* Repeat from *to* till you reach the bottom of your coats other side.
Row 2: Ch3, turn your work, dc in each dc around to the other side of your coat. Row 3-4: Repeat row 2.
Fasten off and hide all loose tails.
You can make this wider or shorter if you want, trying on your coat until you are happy with the length of your border.

Make 2 Triangles for the sides:
With your Bone yarn and 4.5 mm hook ch2
Row 1: in 2nd ch from hook make 3sc, ch1 turn your work
Row 2: sc in each sc (3sc), turn your work.
Row 3: ch1, 2 sc in same st, 1sc in next, 2 sc in last sc (5sc) turn your work
Row 4-5: ch1, sc in each of the 5sc
Row 6: ch1, 2 sc in first st, sc in next 3sc, 2sc in last sc (7sc) turn your work
Row 7-8: ch1, sc in each of the 7sc
You will continue to increase making 2 sc at the beginning and end of one row and work 2 rows even until you have 41 sc on your row.
You will have a total of 57 rows
Once you have that you will sc evenly for a total of 104 rows, or until the triangle fits your side opening. Measure it as you go to determine how long you need your triangle to be. (if you have shortened your coat you will shorten your even rows as well, if you feel the triangle is too wide you can make less increase rows also) DO NOT Fasten off.
Now it is time to sew your triangle to your coat, starting with the right sides facing each other and the point of your triangle at the side seam, you can place a safety pin to hold it in place, you will sl st one half together first, working from the bottom of your triangle and coat to the point of your triangle, stopping just before the point, making sure to match each st as you go. Fasten off and leave a 10inch tail to sew down the point later.
You will work the other half of your triangle the same way starting at the bottom and sl st in the back loops like you have done throughout this pattern, to just before the point, making sure to match sts as you go.
Sew the point in place refer to Part 2 of the Video Tutorial at the 7:31 minute mark. Make another Triangle the same as your first and repeat the assembly process again.
Now is the time to hide all loose tails if you haven’t done so already.
