This pullover, originally published in the 2017 edition of Knitting Traditions and now available in my Ravelry shop (as of October, 2018), is inspired by Baroness Elise Raymonde de Laroche, the first licensed female pilot. Elise’s aviation license photo shows her in a heavy white sweater that could keep her warm as she flew; my version includes grommets and lacing on the front.
