From Vogue Knitting, Fall 1992:


“A Western classic from south of the border. This serape-inspired jacket is knit with a woven stitch and features rustic rawhide touches. Color gradations intensify the impact of the stripes. Created by Candi Jensen with Manos del Uruguay/Simpson Southwick ‘700 Tex’ wool yarn.” (renamed 100% wool)
