This jacket in two sizes uses Double knitting wool, working 2 ends together, for age 2-3. It is loose fitting, with raglan sleeves, a large hood, toggle fastenings and seed stitch edges. A small all-over textured dot in reverse stocking stitch adds interest. For the hood, just trust the instructions and it will work! Please note that this pattern may require additional yarn if not worked in Shetland (the original) as particularly lustre yarns and working in two strands will affect tension and use up the yarn more quickly.

    THANK YOU!! Something free (nice to find a generous soul) and the pattern is adorable I can't wait to make it - it reminds me of PADDINGTON. Will let you know how mine turns out - thanks again
  2. Easy Adorable Pattern

    by Granknit on 6 Nov 2015

    Loved this pattern. Changed it slightly to have wider seed stitch sections and only cast off 2 sts on front armhole shaping.
    Now making a second dinosaur toggled jacket in a larger size using 6.5mm needles with longer body and arms.
    Thank you team for a fabulous pattern for two adorable little men.
  3. confused

    by dragonfly on 21 Sep 2015

    Love it, downloaded it, started making it and got stack! Made the back and got a bit confused with fronts. You say to cast on 26sts. Does that include the 5 sts of the band? If it does then while making the welt we lose a stitch (ex. for the 1st row of the welt we should be finishing with a P1 instead we finish with a K1) won't that mess up the pattern? If it doesn't include the 5 sts of the band should we cast on 31 instead of 26? In addition, while doing the welt, do we increase by one st for the fronts as we did with the back?
  4. thank you :)

  9. No download

    by Knittykitty on 6 Sep 2014

    Apparently from iPhone (at least in my experience) you are unable to download free pattern. There is no visible link anywhere on any page that says "Download Free Pattern". Even within the "description" section. I've tried multiple pattern pages. So disappointing.


    Blacker Yarns Reply: I am sorry to hear that this does not work from tablets, thank you for pointing this out. We have now added all our free patterns to Ravelry, so you will definately be able to download them there. Simply search for the name of the pattern and select download.

    Thank you!
  10. It works!

    by Bevelie on 15 Aug 2014

    Downloaded fine so you have obviously solved the problems. Will check it is in my ability range then hope to make this for my granddaughter. Many thanks, I think the design is splendid.
  11. unable to download

    by jane on 27 Aug 2013

    There is no 'view sample' on my screen. I have a grey brown add to wish list or a share by email. Also an orange add to cart, but that is it. I am using an Ipad, not sure if that makes a difference>

    Our reply: sometimes ipads seem to be different: you should find words which say Download free pattern, which will turn orange when you point at them, to open the link on a new page - hope this helps!

    There are no 'grey words' "view sample" - this seems to be a fake!!!!

    Our reply: not a fake - you just click on the Download Free Pattern grey words - we changed it to make it more obvious! Sorry for any confusion!
