The Adiri Pullover is the second pattern in the Adiri set, which also includes the Adiri cowl. The set is also available for $8.50. If you previously purchased the Adiri Cowl and later purchase the Adiri Set, $6 will automatically be deducted from the set price upon purchase of the set.

The woolen equivalent of a warm, fuzzy snowflake, this versatile pullover is worked up in Shalimar Yarns’ Haven, an irresistibly lofty merino/silk blend. The pattern uses a combination of cables and lace to create an overall pattern that is complex in texture, yet surprisingly easy to work.

The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner lace and cable knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted, and a detailed schematic is included. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
