This pullover, I made without a pattern and I am not at that point where I have models, make-up artist and professional photographs of my work, just me wearing my finished sweater and I am very happy with the result. 😀

This is my first knitting pattern. First time ever writing it, scaling it in size and making something without a pattern.

The Herringbone pullover is a bottom up, knitted in the round pullover with a knitted herringbone pattern around the waist, loosely hugging the waist. The pullover is spacious around the bust & body with a wide neckline and bishop sleeves with high cuffs.The pullover is not snug around the body, part of my cozy, chunky, funky design/style.

As of now the pattern is undergoing the test knitting process and will be available via Raverly, when it is ready, at my designer page.https://www.ravelry.com/designers/gribbadk
