There's still some time this spring for light coats and jackets for brisk days so this month's pattern is a perfect  little tweed box coat from 1955. This coat is in a body bust size of 32-36 inches but if you need help resizing this pattern or finding the appropriate yarn, check the vintage knitting resources at the bottom of this post.

This loose fitting coat with a large collar has decorative pocket flaps and wide cuffs. It closes down the front with four large buttons. Knit it to wear this spring but bring it out again for round two this fall.
