Wine Rose Coat
Free Crochet Pattern by Amanda Schaefer (Muttikam)

Description
The Wine Rose Coat is an ornate circular coat that is made from a textured back-panel and rounds of openwork lace border. Simple and seamless construction allows for the coat to be altered to fit any size and style. The eye-catching texture and flattering lace makes this coat the perfect piece to wear to a party or formal event. The coat can be joined using your favorite brooch or clip, laced up the front using ribbon or ties, or tied around the waist using a tie or belt.

Materials
Caron Simply Soft Solids, Plum Wine 2 skeins or any worsted/aran weight yarn. Size J/6.0mm crochet hook. NOTE: This pattern calls for 2 skeins of yarn, which will make a M size coat (which I am modeling in the pictures on the left). If you make a larger size coat, you will need to purchase more yarn!

I. BACK-PANEL
Important! The back-panel is a rectangular piece worked in rows. When you are crocheting make it wide enough to reach between your two shoulder blades (your starting ch determines this length), and tall enough to reach from your neckline to your waistline (row repeats).

Ch 48. ***A starting ch of 48 sts will make a size M coat. For a modified size, you may chain any multiple of 5 + 3 ch for the foundation ch. Make your starting ch long enough to reach between your two shoulder blades. All directions are the same thereafter.***

Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook. *Sk 2 ch, sc in next ch. Sk 2 ch, (Dc, ch 1, dc) in next sp.* Repeat from * to * to end. Ch 2, turn.

Row 2: Sc in first ch-1 sp. *(Dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc. Sc in next ch-1 sp.* Repeat from * to * to end. Ch 3, turn.

Row 3: Dc in first sc. *Ball st in next ch-1 sp. (Dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc.* Repeat from * to * to end. Ch 2, turn.

Rows 4 - 17: (Row 2, Row 2, Row 3) Repeat rows in parentheses 4 times. Repeat Row 2 twice. Proceed to STEP 2. For a modified size, repeat rows in parentheses until your back-panel is long enough to fit you. Finish off by repeating Row 2 twice.

II. ARMHOLES
Now we begin working in the round.

At the end of the last Row repeat for the backpanel, ch 1 and turn. Sc across entire edge.

Fsc* 12, make 1 sc in corner of Row 1 of the backpanel. Sc across edge of Row 1. Fsc 12, join with sl st to first sc. You may make as many Fsc (foundation single crochet) stitches you need to fit. You do not want the armholes to be too large, but you should have enough space to move your arm around freely without restriction.

***After making the Fscs to form the armholes, put the coat on and make sure the armholes are wide enough before continuing on.***

*See "Glossary of Terms" to learn how to make a "Foundation Single Crochet," otherwise denoted as "Fsc."

After securing each strand of FSC to the corner of the piece your backpanel will curl in a bit. This is completely normal and should not worry you a bit!

III. BORDER

Round 1: Ch 4, make 1 dc in same st as joining. *Ch 1, sk 1 st, make (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in next sc.* Repeat from * to * around. Join to 3rd ch of ch 4 to join.
