Naah, you can knit and you can purl so you are sufficiently skilled! I do suggest you write down the changes you make to the patterns so that you don't have to reinvent the wheel on your second outfit!

Oh, before I forget, a very short length of loop stitch would make great epaulettes!

And a thin icord could be used for leg striping on the trousers.

Are you doing both union and confederate uniforms?
