Chambord is a top down pullover, designed specifically to hide a little tummy, something I find I need in late winter.

The unusual cable is not only a pretty design element, but it brings the eye to the center of the body - and the cozy cowl neck is perfect for a late winter day, while drawing the attention up towards your face. A deep ribbing hits higher on the waist and doesn’t hug the body. A tee shirt or fun belt can poke out down below, and long cuffs also add to the cozy feeling while bringing the eye again, out to the side.

Since it’s knit top down, you can easily alter the shaping or length to as you think suits your own body. Adjust yarn quantity if you alter length.
