Swagger Coat : This pattern contains instructions to knit, crochet detail, the coat shown. Called a Swagger Coat ( a womans pyramid shaped coat with a flared back and usually raglan sleeves, first popularized in the 1930s). This coat, vintage 1942, with the exception of the raglan sleeves, certainly fits the bill. The coat is above knee length, with long sleeves, loose fitting, front lapels and an open front. The only downside of this coat pattern is the limited size range -- misses 16 only.
