Brioche Popover – 244


Designed by Kate Salomon

A classic design can become a wardrobe treasure, a piece that you find yourself reaching for no matter the occasion. This simple oversized layering piece is stunning enough to be a statement while being equally suited to “popping over” any outfit (including your pjs). The lushly textured ribbing is created with three different brioche techniques for a comfortingly squishy fabric that is a pleasure to wear. Select a gradient yarn for a dramatic effect, or quintessential neutrals for a vest that will never go out of style.
