From Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker:

This preppy jacket capitalizes on crochet’s great advantages – a textured tweedy surface, easy curve-flattering shaping, speedy production, and flexibility for alterations.

Depending on the yarn, trim and wearer, you can remake the prep into a girlie-girl or an indie rocker.

The jacket is cropped to the waist with no ease for a trim, Babe Paley fit.

If you are substituting yarn, be sure to choose something with a twist or print variegated color to hide later changes in stitch direction.
