Been looking around and haven't found what I'm looking for.  Anybody know what would be period correct, or similar to period correct for a mid to late 1700's hunting coat made from an indian trade blanket?  Something that would go well with the rock lock during next deer season.

Sorry, pretty clueless on this, and if it's the wrong forum please move.

Thanks,

Will

Lots of good stuff on google!;

Clicking on an image might get you magical results!

e.g; Clicking on the first image gets you instructions and sketches from Track of the Wolf.  Sort of One-Stop-Shopping.

Here's a picture of a canoe jacket made from the capote pattern pack obtained from the website mentioned in Sir Charles's note.  The pack included patterns for three different styles of capotes/canoe jackets. The entire coat was made from one Pendleton blanket.

Good luck with your project.

Look at back issues of  Muzzleloader magazine.  They are a great source for items from the 1700-1800 period.

Years ago I got my pattern and HB blanket from Northwest Traders.  I don't know if they are still in business or not - you might google and see.  You might try Track of The Wolf as well.

A really nice blanket was actually sold on the SASS WIRE earlier today.  Seems I remember reading that it was actually a more common practice to use the blanket, in tact, as a cape style coat wrap, sleeping bag liner and other necessities just by the way it was folded and pinned.  I think this was more applicable for the early long hunter than for the later western mountain man who needed to travel light and on foot??  I think I still have the first several years of old Muzzleloader magazines boxed up around here somewhere??

Hi,

I dunno, maybe it's just me ... but I'm thinking it might make a really good hooded robe for those cold drafty nights ...

TTFN,
