Product description

An airy fabric of Loft knit on the bias creates a beautifully draping coat to wear open or smartly belted. Cleverly spaced narrow stripes emphasize the bias construction, flatter the figure, and allow for myriad color effects from subtle tone on tone to playful melding of brights, from dramatic high contrast pairings to subtly shifting gradients. Pente is knit from the bottom up with a folded hem; short rows shape the shoulders and sleeves, which are cast on at the underarm and joined along the top with an exposed bind-off to provide stability and highlight the construction.
