Courant by Amy Herzog
Courant is a figure-flattering take on a classic pullover with modern touches. The ultra-long sleeves and wide turtleneck balance one another out; combined with a shorter sweater length, they give a balanced and timeless look to the sweater. The deep ribbing on the long sleeves give a “leg-warmer” feel; please choose a yarn with a bit of memory and “scrunchability”.
The sample was worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed; edges are trimmed in a combination of broken rib and seed stitch. The wide, shallow turtleneck is added after seaming and worked in the round. Courant will work best in a yarn that is between sport and light worsted in gauge.
Courant is available in hourglass and straight silhouettes. Please see our page on silhouettes for a full explaination of silhouettes in Customfit.
