A 21st century twist on an empire peplum, Barnard is part fashion and part fun! Its flirty skirt, empire waist and crisp details make it a a stylish and flattering choice for virtually every figure. Shown in The Fibre Co.’s Cumbria, it is equally beautifully knit in their Canopy Worsted or Terra. The Waffle Rib, a cousin of Brioche, is enjoyable to knit, and the rolled edging gives the project just the right amount of challenge. A versatile addition to your wardrobe, Barnard can be worn equally well with jeans, a dress or a skirt.
