“Spike treble crochet creates an elegantly retro houndstooth look that makes this duster perfect for an outing out with a dress or jeans. The remarkably lightweight single-ply, merino and alpaca Takhi Dove yarn keeps you warm without weighing you down. Made seamlessly from the neck down, this coat has an A-line shape and Empire-length buttonband with crocheted buttons.”
