A stylish cropped cover-up like this Tamarac Jacket is the perfect choice to take your ensemble from day to evening. The short, modified set-in sleeves are finished in an alternating cable and openwork pattern while the cut-away body is worked up in stockinette stitch, with all openings edged in a narrow band of twisted rib. Knitted up in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport Yarn, with its delightfully soft handle and vibrant colorway, the finished effect is this lovely cropped jacket which you will adore!
