ERRATA 14.09.2014: very first part - instead of “row” it should read “round” - Elfe is absolutely knitted in the ROUND. No need to print out the new version, just replace “row” with “round” - thank you :-)

ERRATA 27.05.2014: part 5, second sentence - after PM it should always read “4 (4/6/8) stitches” - not 4 4 (…..) - it’s only in the English Version, no need to waste paper and print it out again - just cross out the odd “4”.

03.06.2013 - Version 1.4 - now with size XL

Elfe is a simple shirt that works well with two completely different colors as well as with one color in two different shades. The very light A-shape will suit most figures.

The shirt is completely seamless.

yarn suggestions:
Koigu KPPPM or twisted sock yarn like Dibadu Funnies,
Barking Dog Yarns (Opposites Attract would be perfect!), Wollmeise 100 % or any other yarn
with a similar gauge.

About the gauge: with the last pictures I tried to show the fabric - you can’t look trough (only a bit), but of course it’s not stiff like a board ….

NOTE: To prevent the end of the sleeves from “rolling”, try to bind off not too loose …. bind off a bit tighter than you would usually do it ……. it works! :-)

This pattern is worked seamlessly from top-down using the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers,
(“SusieM” on Ravelry) .
