Haubergeon Pullover

It's's here...I'm so stinking excited!
My first design - the Haubergeon Pullover.

The Haubergeon Pullover is inspired by medieval chain-mail armor, updated with lace for a touch of femininity. Knit in a sport weight wool-blend, this top will be a perfect layering piece and add that extra bit of warmth needed on a cool fall day. The garter stitch yoke and deep hems contrast the meandering lace panel on the body and sleeves.

Worked in the round from the hem to armholes, then worked back and forth. Seamed at the shoulders using 3-needle bind-off, then sleeves are picked up and knitted down to the cuffs.

Finished Bust Size

Suggested ease of -1 to +1 inches

I designed this for Knit Picks Independent Designer Program. It is now available for purchase on Ravelry and will soon be available on Knit Picks as well.

I sent the sample in to Knit Picks and they took some pictures on their model.
She appears to be quite a bit smaller than me, and is wearing it with some positive ease. I think it looks great either way!

I love it and can't wait to get it back. I will wear it all the time, I'm sure!
