About Chamomile

Chamomile by Vanessa Pellisa is a top-down stripy drop-shoulder pullover with neck gussets and the choice between two neckband options, folded or rolled. The pattern is written for both a long and short sleeve version making it both the perfect summer tee and a sweater for cool evenings. It is inspired by classic French Breton Marinière tops, Provence markets and lazy evenings at the beach.

This boxy sweater is knitted top-down following a simple stripe pattern. First, the back and front are worked flat to the underarm. Then, both sections are joined together and the sweater is worked top-down seamlessly in the rnd to the end. Short row shaping is incorporated at the shoulders for an improved fit. Then, stitches are picked up at the front and back shoulders, and a gusset and saddle seam are worked at the shoulders. Lastly, stitches are picked up around the armhole for the sleeves and these are worked seamlessly in the rnd to the end.

Chamomile is the ninth pattern from The Almanac Series.

Based on the original farmer’s Almanac guide to the seasons, this collection acts as a guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. and celebrates each month of the year by giving knitters the chance to sample our Yarn of the Month, with a new design launch.

This year’s Almanac Series has a theme of herbalism to recognise the importance and heightened appreciation of maintaining health in these times.

In the second half of our first Almanac Series collection, we embrace the Spring Summer season, where each month’s yarn has been specifically chosen for its qualities to compliment colder conditions. February is the month of Cirro, March is Acadia, April is Canopy Fingering, May is Luma, June is Amble and July is Meadow.
