A modern homage to the legendary Latin American ghost. The elongated silhouette and subtle asymmetry keep it elegant while a striking color combination brings the drama. Nostalgic embellishments - bobbles galore! - wink in the direction of a more traditional sensibility. Alpaca plus seed stitch ensure an exceptionally cozy drape whether worn long or wrapped double underneath a winter coat.

Both written directions and charts are provided.
