princess6860504, thanks for the heads up. I have yet to make any item of great substance. Other than a king size bedspread that I used thread it is duly noted that it is heavy. So, with an item like this it may be a good idea to consider a light weight yarn? Both types of yarn used here are considered medium weight. Being a "coat" it may be a good thing to be heavy, but will that affect the shape over time?

In my experience, large crocheted apparel items can get pretty heavy once it's all said and done...so I am wondering about the weight of this coat and if it hangs and pulls due to sheer weight of yarn. I know it uses the Red Heart Soft and the Unforgettable, so that is a plus- I think it could be okay! This is a head turner for sure.

This vintage blooms crochet coatigan is beautiful. I can not believe that this coatigan is made completely of granny squares sewn together. The collar leaves a little be desired. The fall colors just make me want to wrap up in this one.

I was just looking at the pattern and it looks so complicated. There are just so many activities involved in accomplishing this Vintage Blooms Crochet Coatigan before it is completed and actually worn outside for everyone to see but it's worth it because it is so gorgeous and unique. It deserves a second look especially from the women. Three colors were used to make this coatigan so uniquely elegant and eye-catching.
