Here’s the one I tried with that wolf fur yarn. It looks gorgeous and pretty similar to that coat when worked but is a nightmare to try to use this way. There are TONS of missed stitches in there but you can’t tell except by feeling it.

So if you use it in single rows it should work well. It does come in white but I dont know what the color it called.

That Yarn is beautiful! After doing some math and poking around on the Internet, I think I’m going to go with Bernat baby velvet.
It’s a yarn I’m familiar with, and is easily accessible via Amazon. (A three pack at the moment is about $18 with free shipping. So not TOO bad.)

Yes! I’m hoping by posting here it holds me accountable!

Good idea! I think if we were all accountable to somebody we wouldn’t have as many WIPS?
Maybe…….

Maybe…. but probably not :rofl:

Well, if anything. I’ll be a master at short rows after this.

It seems like that front panel is constructed via the triangular shoulder pieces, which I thought was interesting… what have I gotten myself into LOL.

Edit: I will not be doing the chevron back. I MIGHT try the chevron on the sleeves if I decide to make them in the round, but it will kind of be a mash up of the grey/white design and the white/red I think.
We’ll see how I feel once the yarn arrives on Monday.
In the meantime, I’m experimenting on acrylic.
