Inspired by my favourite country vet, this jumper is sure to take you back to the Yorkshire dales when warm woolies were a necessity of farm life. Mrs. Herriot has the classical styling of proper British attire, but with a modern twist. The Diamond lattice pattern harkens back to an older time while the uneven hem and side opening give you that wee bit of cheek that your grandmother may not approve of. There is plenty of interest in the texture of the fabric to keep you from nodding off while sitting by the fire.

Loose fitting with 2” of positive ease. Chose a size that is 2” larger than your actual bust measurement.
