Inspired by the simple and flattering yoke of a previous design, and my desire for an easy to wear uniform piece with pockets (that are bigger on the inside).

The original was knit with Prado de Lana RomLin Bulky in the most amazing and shimmering silver shade.

The choice of a beautiful bulky weight yarn makes a great cool weather pop-over.
The flattering neckline is a little higher in the back.

Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4) 5, 6, 7, 8
Gauge: 14 stitches and 22 rounds = 4”/ 10 cm, in stockinette stitch.
A fabric that is not too tight or firm works best for the flow of the garment.
Needles: Gauge needle and needles 1 size smaller for bands.
The sample was knit with US10/6mm 32”/81 cm circular needles using the magic loop method and is the 3rd size and fits with 4”/ 10 cm of positive ease.
