Seed Stitch & Steeked CardiCoat

I wanted to knit a cardigan / coat to wear in these transitional weeks (months?) between winter and spring, but did not like any of the patterns I found.  I decided to pose for myself this challenge: write a pattern for a top-down raglan knit in one piece, in the round, with seed stitch borders/ trim, employ steeking to create division between front panels, and dye the sweater after knitting.  So far, so good!  I’ve completed the writing of pattern except for the instructions for the sleeves and steeking, which you can download by clicking the link below.  I’m calling it a CardiCoat because of its heavy weight and slightly longer length.
