The Einstein Coat

A friend showed up at a lunch last year with a version of this Einstein Coat. Because "you feel like a genius when you wear it".  I asked if she had made it. She had. I borrowed the book from her with the pattern, then found the book used online. It was worth the purchase as it has loads of great techniques and instructions.  My return to knitting was on. Approximately 8 months later I had my own Einstein Coat.  Feeling like a genius might be a stretch, but I love it.

This color is a beauty. I used buttons I had on hand, a mix & match approach.

One of my jars full of buttons.

If you are a knitter or would like to become one the Ravelry site is a wealth
of eye candy and information for patterns, techniques, yarn suppliers and forums.

Now I'm working on this pattern in a deep teal.
 It's going to take awhile. Small needles and thin yarn. Stay tuned. 


  1. Very nice. I never heard of an Einstein coat. Looks good for Michigan winters.

  2. It looks very comfortable. I never knew an Einstein coat or sweater was a "thing!"
    I don't knit. Never could get the hang of two needles. Probably because I crochet with one.

  3. Pretty coat! I love Revelry site, so many great patterns! Your best is beautiful too.

  4. That Einstein Coat is fabulous! I don't know if I would feel like a genius while wearing one, but if I'd made it, I'd feel smartly talented.

  5. I love your mix and match buttons. They really dress it up and give ti additional interest.
