While Kaffe’s beautiful yarn inspired the original design, Noro or any other self-striping yarn will work as well. Alternatively, you can use several different non-striping yarns to create the stripes, or knit the coat in one fabulous solid color to really make a statement.
Kodachrome is worked in one piece to the underarm on either circular or straight needles, with 2” positive ease at the lower hips. Sleeves are knit separately and set in. Chunky pockets are worked on the bodice, with more stitches than the lining so they pop out slightly, and the collar is worked in place. The coat closes with a dual-separating zipper.
The coat in the photo was knit all in one piece, which creates narrower bands of the self-striping yarn. By knitting the front and back separately, you can elongate the stripes and create random striping for each piece, which results in an entirely different look.
Kodachrome was designed to be basic and versatile so that you can get creative with color, so have fun!
