This sleeveless shell by Elizabeth Smith is tastefully versatile, featuring a removable cowl worked separately from the body that can be worn only when needed. Deliciously tactile waffle stitch textures offset by garter stitch sides and a relaxed fit, all worked in the round from the bottom up, make this a simple and essential piece that’s perfect for layering.
