Sizes are 34; 38; 41.5; 44.5; 47
Skeins: 12; 12; 13; 13; 14
Yards per skein on Briggs&Little Atlantic: 136 yds each

I read that this coats grows a bit, and it kinda stretchy...so if you are a bust of 42 or 43...the 41.5 will prolly work rather than the 44.5". Unless you like a real roomy coat.

Just something I read. That is not in the official pattern.
I'm still trying to decide if I want to do this one. Actually, I do want to do it since I'm a cable freak and this is beautiful but I have a 48" bust measurement and I haven't been too sure about upsizing. I keep hearing that it's very stretchy so I don't know that I would need to upsize. I don't want to go to all the trouble of upsizing the pattern if it is unneccessary but I don't want to knit it up only to find that it doesn't fit well.
Ugh!
