This landscape of cables is a texture lover’s dream. The densely woven fabric of Shelter plays with scale, alternating blocks of small lattice cables and single rib to form a patchwork between cabled zigzags. Mohr features tailored shaping and smart details like double decreases that preserve the single-rib background fabric along the curve of the set-in sleeves. With its ribbed collar and trim fit, it’s the perfect little jacket for fall.


The garment is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then sewn together. The collar and front bands are picked up and worked after garment assembly.
