The Tenth Doctor now has a spiffy crocheted overcoat! The pattern is a collaboration between ladymoony  and snuffykin. When ladymoony decided she would create her Jack Harkness doll, based on my Doctor Who patterns, we pm'd back and forth about how to make his overcoat. Jack has to have an overcoat, right? Anyway, I mention that the Doctor now has coat envy. So she made him a coat, and very sweetly wrote out the directions so that you can make one! Should you decide to make a Fourth Doctor variant, this pattern could be used also.

The pattern below is an excerpt from ladymoony's post at who_knits   with lots more photos of the Doctor and Jack enacting a fanfic adventure. You can see oodles of photos introducing her Moonlight Jack Harkness doll here.

Long Jacket for Tenth Doctor Doll:
As much as I’d like to take credit for making this pattern, all I really did was tweak snuffykin’s jacket pattern from her Tenth Doctor Doll to make a removable over coat. All credit should really go to her ^_^
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Warm Brown (0336)
(ETA 3/14/08: Size G crochet hook. I'm also writing a DK weight yarn version with F hook.- snuffykin)
Reference Pics:
Sleeve (Make 2):
Row 1: Using snuffykin’s Foundation Crochet Tutorial, sc 12, join into ring. (Or ch 8, join, and sc 12 into ring.)
2-16: sc around
17. Turn, ch 1, sc in each of next 8 sts.
18. Turn, sk 1, sc in each of next 6 sts.
19. Turn, sk 1, sc in each of next 4 sts.
20. Turn, sk 1, sc in each of next 2 sts.
This is EXACTLY like snuffykin’s base, with a few minor changes:
Chain 33.
1. Skip 1 ch, sc 32. Turn. 
2-20. Ch 1, sc 32. Turn. 
21. Sk 1, sc 30, sl st. Turn. 
22. Ch 1, sc 30. Turn. 
Begin Left Front Section (LFS)(this is where most of the changes occur)
23. (RS) Ch 1, sc 8. Turn. 
24. Sk 1, sc 7. Turn.
25. Ch 2. hdc 1, sc 5 sl st. Turn.
26. sk 1, sc 4, dc 1. Turn. 
27. Ch 2. dc 1, sc 3, sl st. Turn.
28. sk 1 sc 2, hdc 1. Turn.
29. ch 1, sc 2, sl st. Turn.
30. sk 1, sc 1. Turn.
Cut yarn and pull tail through loop.
Begin Middle Upper Back Section (no changes from snuffykin’s pattern):
(RS) Return to 13th row in left front section. Find the 8th sc made. Skip 1 st to right, join new yarn in next st.
23. Ch 1, sc 12, sl st. Turn.
24. Ch 1, sc 11, sl st. Turn.
25. Ch 1, sc 10, sl st. Turn
26. Ch 1, sc 9, sl st. Turn.
27. Ch 1, sc 8, sl st. Turn.
28. Ch 1, sc 8.
Cut yarn and pull tail through loop on hook.
Begin Right Front Section (RFS):
(RS) Return to 13th row in middle upper back section. Find 12 st made. Skip 1 st to right, join new yarn in next st.
23. (RS) Ch 1, sc 8. Turn.
24. Sk 1, sc 7. Turn.
25. Sk 1, sc 5, hdc 1. Turn. 
26. Ch 2, dc 1, sc 4. Turn. 
27. Sk 1, sc 3, hdc 1. Turn. 
28. Ch 2, hdc 1 sc 2. Turn. 
29. Sk 1, sc 2, sl st. Turn. 
30. sk 1, sc 1.
Cut yarn and pull tail through loop on hook
Sew the sleeves to the jacket using the left over yarn from the sleeves. Pin back the lapels with the yarn from RFS and LFS. I also did a line of scs between the shoulder blades to make the jacket a bit more even along the back. Yay! You now have a jacket!

Have I mentioned how awesome snuffykin  is? Just making sure...

You are special! And you made the first ever Jack Harkness crochet plushie...on Earth. ;)

On the middle upper back and right front section, should the first line of each read the 23rd row, or the 13th? Cause the 13th row would make for strange appendages instead of the upper for the coat. :)

Whoops! It should be the 23rd row, yes. I will correct it. Thanks!

Re: overcoat pattern
Hi freiperry! I'm glad you find the pattern helpful.

i am thinking of making this coat and i was wondering is the coat removable? and if it is removable how did you attach all the peaces together?
Apr. 29th, 2010 03:21 am (UTC)
Yes, the coat is removable. Sleeve is "sandwiched" at edges of middle back section shoulder and right front shoulder, and other sleeve between edges of middle back section shoulder and left front shoulder.

Getting the stitches right.
I'm sort-of new to crocheting, and on the Left Front Section, when it says to "turn7 sts" and with the other rounds, what does this mean? I know how to turn the work, but I don't know what it means to turn the individual stitches?

Re: Getting the stitches right.
Oopies. That was a typo. It should have read:

Turn. 7sts.

That means you just finished making 7sts in that row. As it can be a bit confusing, I just removed all the instances of stitch counts at the end of each row. :)
