  1. I see that you have the pattern available for a paid download. however the pay site only accepts credit card, or Paypal Credit Card. there isn’t a way to simply pay through PayPal. is it possible for me to PayPal you the money and you can email me the pattern?

      • I have completed the project! Your instructions are quite good, though I still modified slightly: to achieve size for 5’11” woman @ 175 lbs, I used size H 5.00mm hook, worked 67 rows tall on each panel, and worked an additional panel at buttons’ seam and around hood.

    I’m having trouble determining what ‘light weight wool’ is. Is it similar to a sport weight acrylic, or is it smaller? Thank You

      Hi,
      Basically you can use any light weight yarn type, just make sure you have a similar gauge with that yarn ๐Ÿ™‚
