The Design

“A classic transformed.”

Sometimes, a simple bit of editing changes the whole impact of a garment. We knit the body of this version of our Better-Than-Basic Pullover—and decided to stop right there! Without sleeves and neck, the classic pullover becomes a fun ‘popover.’ The dropped shoulder creates a cute capped sleeve and the modern, boxy shape is perfect over a tee—long-sleeved or short-sleeved!

Our pullover is transformed even further knit in a summer fiber, like Lang Lino. Crisp and clever, soft and strong, this 100% linen yarn is a great choice for spring and summer knits. Fine linen fibers have been constructed into a chainette-style strand—almost like a fine, chain tube—at a light, airy worsted-weight gauge. With a pretty palette of soft neutrals and gentle garden shades, Lino is a lovely trans-seasonal yarn!
