I can't pick up my copy of the book until tomorrow, but I has hoping to get started on the Smock Coat (the brown coat with the ribbon in the back) tonight. I was hoping that someone could just give me the first few lines??

I have simply baby, what did you want to know about the smock coat(brown with blue trim)??

Nope, the long brown coat (the one with the double-breasted, 4 button front). I just wanted to know how many stitches to cast on for the 1-2 yr size (also, I'd love to know the gauge). THANKS!!!

Smock coat, 4 button front, ribbon on back
Gauge 22 sts and 36 rows over 4" on sz 5 needles

Not sure which size you wanted... either one, you cast on with sz 3 needles
12-18 mos: 115 sts
24-36 mos: 121 sts

Either one, Knit 3 rows, then you'll switch to sz 5- so you'll need both size needles. This should get you started :)
