The Design

"Pop on for chilly days."

Designer Julie Hoover calls Post a ‘fully fashioned popover.’ An elegant blend between a poncho and a capelet, it’s just the piece to pop on for an added layer of warmth on chilly days. Vents at each side allow for free arm movement, while a short, upstanding collar keeps you nice and cozy.

Post was knit with DK-weight Shibui Nest. At its core, this yarn has a soft wool-and-alpaca strand. This, in turn, is wrapped with thin, contrasting, criss-crossing strands of fine wool. The difference in tension between the inner and outer strands gives this yarn a wee wave. As a result, Nest creates a bouncy, squishy, soft fabric with an intriguing texture and marled look.
