Description
Inspired by vintage car coats of the 1940s and 1950s, Annie Modesitt set out to re-create these classics for crocheters. The coat is worked from the hem up in a crossed double crochet pattern, and the waist is shaped with subtle darts that will flatter any figure. Pockets and Dorset buttons provide the finishing touches to a look that will go everywhere, whether you drive a VW bug or a Rolls Royce sedan.
