I've always wanted to knit a sweater coat.. so, it's nice to know that SOMEONE did manage to knit one and actually FINISH it too!   Grin

It is beautiful.

Thank you so much ! It's very encouraging. Actually it was quick and easy to knit : chunky yarn and only 2 pieces (right side and left side, then sewn). I don't know how much it took me to knit it, but I would say about 30 hours, no much more. And no I don't knit very fast !  Wink I am very happy with this project. I am planning to make another one, with homespun yarn.

I'm so sorry not to have answered sooner ! I think you could make it shorter easily. My gauge was correct to the explanation but I think my yarn was heavier than the one used for the pattern (phildar don't sell it anymore), so my coat is much longer (due ti gravity ! lol) than the photo in the catalog.
