Yoko Hatta’s sixth design for Wool People is a loose A-line smock in Shelter, the perfect casual overlayer for cozy warmth. Panels of textural broken rib flow up the center lines and slant across the hips to add geometric interest and visual movement.

Imago is worked flat in four pieces with a ground of reverse stockinette, and the hem is lowered at the sides through the use of decreases and increases—no short rows necessary, but simultaneous shaping will require your full attention. Three-quarter sleeves with delicate ribbed cuffs balance the wide hem and a generous neckline allows easy layering.

Embrace the volume of this shape and wear it with full skirts, or opt for a sleek pair of jeans beneath.
