Sashiko Happy Coat MAL
We are proud to announce our first ever garment MAL! And it truly is a fabulous garment! The Sashiko Happy Coat is a gorgeous coat, crocheted with Scheepjes Our Tribe. Inspired by the Sashiko technique, the lovely decorative embroidery on the coat is made using our Scheepjes Alpaca Rhythm.
The pattern includes sizes S till XXL and, as an added bonus, Susan will provide extra information for those wishing to custom fit or those looking to adapt the pattern to larger sizes. This crochet pattern is perfect for intermediate through to advanced crafters!
The Sashiko Happy Coat is a paid, ad-free PDF from Ravelry or Etsy containing the entire pattern. For a LIMITED TIME only, to coincide with our MAL, this pattern will be available for a specially discounted price of $10 AUD (roughly €5,50| £5 | $6.15 USD). This offer runs from 25 March to 7 April, after which this pattern will remain available to purchase on Ravelry at the full price. Participants are required to purchase the complete pattern to participate in this MAL as it will not be released in parts.
