Audrey Baby Swing Coat
Inspired by the classic look of vintage clothes, this Audrey Baby Swing Coat looks just like something Audrey Hepburn would wear, only sized for a precious little girl. This project is worked out of HiKoo CoBaSi from Skacel in one piece, from the neck down. Sleeves begin with raglan shaping and are finished by working in the round. For the pleated seam across the back, stitches are placed on scrap yarn and new stitches are provisionally cast on in the next row. At the end, the three-needle bind-off closes this opening and creates the pleats.
