    The Herringbone Hygge Pullover pattern is the perfect knitflix sweater project… both when you’re knitting it and when you’re wearing it! Featuring a beautiful band of herringbone at the bottom of both the body and sleeves, it’s a delightfully comfy sweater that you can wear out and still feel “dressy” for a casual outing.


    This top-down yoke pullover is worked in the round, starting with twisted ribbing, featuring stockinette for most of the knit, and ending with a squishy herringbone band.


    One test knitter described it as “a modern twist on a classic style” while another said, “the comfort level is 200%!” Either way, it’s a must-have in your cozy wardrobe. Learn more about the design inspiration, knitting experience, and wearing experience here.


    The pattern includes 11 sizes, with finished full chest measurements from 32-76” (80-190 cm), 2 customizable body lengths, 4 customizable sleeve lengths… and endless options for playing with color!

    This design was created as a collaboration with Campfiber Yarns. If you have the means, I highly recommend checking out her gorgeous yarns. I don’t typically choose to work with non-superwash, but I truly love her non-superwash DK yarn, and I love her color aesthetic. The fade that I used for my full length version is one that she created specifically for this design, and I definitely recommend it!
