The Design

“Retro-rustic.”

In handsome, dense, double moss stitch, this cozy outerwear classic is a little retro, a little ‘Audrey.’ Three quarter length sleeves and a folded, stand-up collar—and the option to add generous pockets—give it a tailored finish. Dropped shoulders and straight sleeves allow room for comfy layering. Our original length brings to mind the favorite duffle or pea coat, while the crop version makes us think of 60s suits à la Jackie O.

For a Car Coat with a bit of a rustic touch, we chose chunky-weight Brooklyn Tweed Quarry. This yarn’s tweedy flecks add even more brilliant texture to this piece’s fabric! Quarry is 100% Wyoming-raised, Targhee-Columbia wool with a roving-style strand. Though it looks like a singles strand, it’s actually three unspun plies of wool twisted together. The knit fabric is lightweight, has good stitch definition, and softens nicely after hand-washing.
