I'm super excited for my latest pattern release: Sybil's Sweater from Downton Abbey!
As you know if you've been reading here, this sweater was designed based on the one Lady Sybil wears in season 2. You can read more about my design process for creating a sweater pattern based on the show here.
Now that the season is over you can keep the Downton love going by knitting and wearing the knitwear from the show!
This heavy cardigan is quick to knit on size 10 needles, and even though it's based on a garment from 1917, it still fits beautifully in today's wardrobe:
I'm modeling it without the belt here as that's how I wear it when I'm not channeling British ladies, but you could definitely wear the belt when wearing it "the modern way" too.
I've made the sleeves extra long to give it a great cozy feeling.
And the sailor collar? So cute! Reminds me of a blouse I had when I was about four years old that I loved wearing but wasn't allowed to except for on special occasions.
The pattern in sized from 32" to 56" bust sizes and is knit flat with seams.
