Bourrasque by Amy Herzog

Bourrasque is an homage to one of my most favorite store-bought tops: A wide-necked A-line number that I wear constantly. It's incredibly comfortable, makes me feel chic the second I slip it on, and is roomy and flowy enough for me to stop thinking about the clothes I'm wearing and just get on with whatever I'm doing.

I feel the same way about the sweater. Worked up in Indigodragonfly Chameleon Sock, an incredible merino-cashmere-silk blend, the fabric is almost unspeakably delicious next to the skin, and has a great fluidity and movement. The A-line shaping makes the sweater float next to my body rather than clinging to it. Bourrasque has found a new home at the top of my closet rotation.

I'm wearing the pullover in a close fit, which pertains largely to the shoulders: In A-line sweaters, the bottom is still plenty roomy (this sample has about 5'' (12.5 cm) of ease in my hips) even in a 'close' fit.

Bourrasque is an a-line design, so your sweater pattern will have no waist shaping. The hem will be larger than the bust/chest by at least 4 inches (10 cm), with shaping worked along the side seams. You can adjust the dimensions by clicking 'customize fit specifics'. You can use any measurement set to create this pattern.

Bourrasque uses the following design choices:

  • Style: pullover
  • Silhouette: A-line silhouette
  • Length: Low-hip length
  • Sleeves: Full-length tapered sleeve
  • Neck style: Wide scoop neck
  • Neck depth: 1"/2.5 cm above armhole-shaping start
  • Finishing:
    • Hem edging and height: 1x1 Ribbing, 1"/2.5 cm
    • Sleeve edging and height: 1x1 Ribbing, 3½"/9 cm
    • Neck edging and height: Stockinette, ¾"/2 cm
