Honung is a cozy pullover with a voluminous cowl neck to keep you warm in the fall breeze.
This raglan-sleeved pullover is worked from the top down in one piece. The low-dipped scoop neck makes the pullover comfortable to wear. The big cowl neck is knitted last, and adds an extra layer of warmth and coziness.
Waist and back shaping give this hip length pullover a figure-flattering hourglass shape. Hem, cuffs, and the cowl are worked in a simple eyelet lace. Worked in luscious single merino this is the go-to fall sweater you’ll grab from your closet again and again.
The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace pattern.
