The TN31 Parka Sewing Pattern

TN31 is a relaxed and versatile interpretation of the classic fishtail parka. Lined or unlined it can work for all seasons. It has side pockets, front welt pockets, a back vent and optional drawstring waist. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated. Neck has 1cm seam allowance.

Sizes: UK 6-18

Suggested Fabric

Dry Oilskin, Oilskin (lined version only), Tweed, Woollens, Cotton Drill, Cotton Canvas, Waterproofed Cottons and Linens. Using something like oilskin will ensure it keeps it structural shape, but we think it would look equally good in something more slinky like a Tencel Twill.

For the ribbing neckline, we have used rib that stretches by half again, i.e. 10cm piece stretches to 15cm. We used our plain rib which you can see by clicking onto alternative fabrics. You can also use a piece of our French striped ribbing for the neckline.

For the lining we would recommend using Barrier Lining if you are making the oilskin version. Other lining options; Brushed Cotton, Cotton Poplin, or a medium weight slip lining in viscose or acetate.

Additional Supplies
6 x buttons, approximately 17-22mm
3.2M of drawstring cord
15cm ribbing
Matching Thread

As with other hand dyed yarns, we would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.

We care deeply about the environment and we're aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so we make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.

We try to ensure all colours look true on our monitor but they can vary substantially. If you’re unsure about a particular colourway please get in touch!
