Estelle is an all-season top that can be worn on its own or as a layered piece. It is constructed in two parts; first the collar piece is worked separately and then the body is worked from the top down. The pattern includes bust and waist shaping to create a flattering fit.

This pattern requires an understanding of basic cabling stitches, knitting-up stitches, and joining live stitches with kitchener stitch (however, this can be substituted for basic seaming).

For best results, use Kitchener stitch to graft the ends together and make an invisible seam. You will need to cast on using the provisional cast on method if choosing this method. There are various YouTube and internet tutorials on how to execute this handy technique. Here is an article from Knitty on the Kitchener Stitch:

The pattern instructions include chart, written instructions and schematic measurements.
Errata: Bottom cable section should read “work rows 1-10 of chart twice then rows 1-5 once more, total of 25 rows.”
The cable written instructions for collar should read: Row 10(WS): (c6r, purl 6) 3 times.
