Knit all in one piece, this stunning duster is worked from the bottom up in a charming lace pattern. The clever design naturally drapes into an elegant and flattering waterfall collar. Ideal for work or play, this duster is a must-have in your summer wardrobe.

NOTE FROM MARLY--“I’m telling all of you…ARE YOU LISTENING? The yarn I used for this project is a luxury fiber but TOTALLY WORTH INVESTMENT! I can make a full duster to fit my 52” bust with the yak and bamboo and IT DOESN’T GROW OUT OF SHAPE! That is right…the yak keeps the bamboo in its place. So, if you are able…get the Lhasa Wilderness yarn from You won’t be disappointed!”


• 6 (7, 8) skeins Lhasa Wilderness from Bijou Basin Ranch, 75% yak, 25% bamboo (180 yds/56g) in color Regal

• U.S. size 6 (4mm) needles, or size required for gauge

• U.S. size G-6 (4.24mm) crochet hook -- for trim

NOTE pattern available in pattern store has the instructions written for a shorter version for the more petite knitters ;-)
