Here's what you'll find in this newsletter:

I include a link for the source for the granny square design that I used to make this cardigan. It does NOT include the pattern for the granny square itself because I did not invent the pattern and including it would be plagiarism. (I'm really not in to plagiarism.)

This newletter is a summary of my continued exploration of taking the granny square and fitting it to the human form. For my first newsletter about the topic, click here. If you already have that newsletter, I have used the same granny square design to make this cardigan. 

I'll tell you what kind of yarn I used and which hook I used. Most of the yarns I used to make this coat are discontinued, either because the dyer is no longer making the colorway and/or the dyer is no longer in business. (I've been knitting for over 20 years. I went into deep stash to make this!) So rather than list inaccessible yarns, I provide a long list of other dyers I admire who have made colors that would look great in a coat like this. The list is by no means exhaustive. I encourage you to make the procurement of yarns for a project like this an enjoyable part of the process. 

I include the dimensions of the sweater and the number of squares used for fronts, sleeves and back. 

I provide links to show how I sewed each square together and crochet the edging. 

I do not include a pattern for the shawl collar. 

I do not include a pattern for the embroidered belt, but I do give a link to the robust tutorial on my website.
