Whether you wear it with denim or tailored pieces, this simple layer will have you dressed and out the door in a flash. It tapers imperceptibly to the hem for a boxy shape that doesn’t flare at the bottom. Dropped shoulders create a flattering line. The subtly textured rib pattern results in a smooth, flat finish that’s nice inside out, too.

We designed our Popover to be knit in a lighter worsted-weight yarn, like Berroco Ultra Alpaca. A fiber with an even balance of drape and bounce is ideally suited to this warm shell!
