The Augustus was inspired by Ancient Rome. I designed it back in 2018 when our business slogan was “crocheting history”. This pattern received so much love at its release in 2019, so I decided to give it the makeover it deserved. This improved pattern has extended sizes, clearer instructions, and digital stitch charts to reference.
This sleeveless robe is made by crocheting and seaming three rectangles. After the panels have been seamed, a contrasting color bottom is added.
This pattern comes in the following four sizes: XS-M (L-XL, 2x-4x, 5x-6x) / ~ 50” (60”, 70”, 80”) chest circumference. The robe is intended to have 14”-22” of positive ease.
In addition, this pattern has two length options: ~35” or ~43” from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the coat.
