depending on size worked AND 40cm / 16” length AND
needles suitable for working small circumferences in
the round
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct
gauge after blocking.

Notions: 5 stitch markers (including one unique for
beginning of round), scrap yarn or stitch holders,
tapestry needle

Notes: Eirys is worked top down in the round with raglan
increases and optional short rows at the neck. At the
underarm, sleeve stitches are put on hold and the body
is worked in one piece. This pattern provides instructions
for two hem options, a straight hem or a split hem.
The sleeve stitches are picked up and sleeves are
worked down in the round. Finally, stitches are picked
up around the neckline and a short neckband, a high
neckband or a folded neckband is completed.
Note: The shorter neckband sits better when the optional
short rows have been worked during the yoke shaping.

This pattern is a template for a single-colour pullover and
does not include instructions for colour-blocking. Please
consider the ’sample notes’ for each example if you are
planning to replicate one.
