This comfy pullover can be dressed up paired with a cute skirt or down with a pair of your favorite jeans.

Contrasting color ‘string of purls’ (adapted from Barbara Walker to be worked in the round) worked at the hem and cuffs add interest.

Elise is worked bottom up, in the round, with the sleeves picked up around the armhole & worked back down.

PATTERN NOTES

There are three sections in which you can make the body of the sweater (from armholes to hem) longer. The first is immediately after the border; knit additional rounds as desired prior to beginning waist shaping. The second is after the waist decreases but before the bust increases. The last is after the bust increases but prior to dividing for the armholes.
