So here it is, the pattern I wrote for Rinoa Heartilly's duster. The PDF also includes a bonus pattern for the arm warmers.

There may still be mistakes in the pattern; if you find one, please let me know! I'd also be very happy to see pictures if someone does knit this. Please only use this pattern for personal, non-commercial use. The pattern can also be found on Ravelry.

Final Fantasy And All Respective Names are Trademark & of Square Co., Ltd, 1997, 1998.

EDIT: Apparently, this deviation is responsible for 25% of the views of my gallery. That's pretty amazing, and quite inspires me to make patterns available in the future!

Thank you for making this pattern. I finished it and put a picture on my deviantart. I made it a little bigger for me.

Do you have this for a easy knitter pattern or just needles?

I just got into knitting but i will be definitely attempting this pattern soon. When I was looking for ways to create this outfit at first knitting never came to mind, but your pattern for the duster and arms is just awesome.

I'm just a little curious as to how you would work this on circulars, as that's what the pattern calls for.

Wow, this must have been a lot of work! I was going to make my own pattern, but this is even better! Um... I do have a question though. Do you have any suggestions for making it smaller? (I'm short XD )

For the lower part, you just knit straight until the duster is the desired length from the hips down. From there on, if you're petite, just decrease the number of increase rows (and corresponding decrease rows after the front tie); and do not work the full 16 rows for the shoulders at the front. If you're not that thin (or have a large buste), work the total number of increases but work them as follows: 1 normal increase row, 1 double increase row (K1, P1, K1, inc, K2, inc, pattern to last 5 st, inc, K2, inc, K1, P1, K1). Decrease in the same way for the front.
For the back, keep track of how many rows you have eliminated from the front (after the first cast-offs for the armholes, of course) and eliminate these from the back as well. Take care that if you're doing the colourwork, you will have to start it earlier than the pattern says by as many rows as you have eliminated.

Obviously I didn't test those modifications, but I think it should work out :)

You're welcome! I hope the pattern works out for you. It doesn't make sense to me to sell a pattern that is basically *fan art* (original designs is a whole different matter). If you have any questions or find any mistakes, please send me a note!

This is awesome! I can't wait to try this out... Granted that will mean buying more yarn, but I am always happy to increase my yarn stash! XD
