Ginormous Jacket

 

For abbreviations and transatlantic translation I suggest you check out Knitty

If you get confused (this is the first pattern Iíve ever attempted to write out so I may have made terrible mistakes) then please donít hesitate to email me with any queries/rants at my incompetence.
