Designed to take the chill off or as an extra layer of warmth over a fitted jacket, this poncho leaves room to move without being too long or bulky to wear indoors and still be able to function. The cowl neck can be left up, scrunched down, or folded over depending on how much warmth you need. The name was chosen as it's an extra layer of protection against the cold and the elements.
The body is knit flat starting with and ending with ribbing with a faux ribbed long edge to give interest, prevent edge rolling and provide design continuity. The body has a short seam but the cowl is knit in the round.
