(6) Name: 'Knitting : Heraldry

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • knit in the round

Pattern Description:

We're all a little chevron crazy these days, and why not?! The more patterns the better. Originally these little V shapes were used on badges to indicate rank on military and police uniforms. They were also used on coats of arms to distinguish military units during battles. Heraldry is the study and practice of using these chevron-focused badges and coats of arms. While the more chevrons on your badge doesn't necessarily mean you are a higher rank, why chance it? My Heraldry cardigan will have you covered in thousands of chevrons and therefore king of the chevron army!

A cropped sweater with three quarter length sleeves and an oversized collar that drapes open in the front, this sweater is sure to be your go to evening cardigan. Belt it for a more polished look.
