This magnum opus of a blanket coat has magic appeal. Lush cables and dramatic chevrons of traveling stitches create long, svelte lines that flatter every body type, while cozy pockets and acres of textured fabric invite you to cuddle down and hibernate. Seamed construction and professional details give this showstopper structure and longevity, ensuring you’ll count the days until the weather turns chilly again every year.

Sample photographed with Frieze scarf.
