About Herbert:

Herbert is a comfortable layering piece - A long-sleeved, V-necked cardigan with deep pockets, perfect for long country walks or running errands in town. The fisherman’s rib stitch pattern creates a bouncy fabric with subtle but lively texture. It displays the true depth of our Barn yarn, spun from a blend of three different British sheep breeds. 

Chest size ranges from 28-62 inches (71-157cm). Additional fitting options include shaping for broader shoulders, and adapting for body and sleeve lengths. Our models have both been photographed wearing size 3L.

For further details about this lovely cardigan please visit the pattern page.

Here you will also be able to read a little more about the 'real' Herbert. An essay about Susan's search for Herbert and the reasons behind designing the Herbert cardigan is included as part of your PDF pattern.

 

Using our stunning new yarn Barn your kit contains all the yarn you need to knit the size cardigan of your choice. Barn is currently available in its natural shade of Dry Stone Wall.

The PDF pattern is included in the price of your kit along with a Susan Crawford Vintage project bag. The kit price represents a significant saving, with more than 20% discount given compared to purchasing these items separately.
