Skills RequiredLace Knitting Longtail Cast-on Magic Loop Pick Up Stitches Sweater/Cardigan - Bottom Up Working in the Round
Elvire pullover is a mid-season sweater worked in the round with a bottom-up construction and twisted ribs finishes. The sleeves are worked with a pretty lace on the side, either on double-pointed needles or on circular needles using the Magic Loop technique. The body is worked in the round, you join the sleeves and the last rows are knitted back and forth to form the neckline. The neckline stitches are then picked up and knitted in a few rows.
