Being the undeniable girly girl that I am, I fell in love with Anzula’s Nebula yarn the instant I saw it. With just a hint of sparkle, I felt it would be perfect used as an entire garment. The beautiful Storm colorway put me in mind of the Northern Lights, and so this lovely pullover was named for Abisko, Sweden - one of the best places in the world to view the Lights.

Worked from the bottom up, seamlessly in the round, you can adjust the length as you see fit. Want a summery crop top to layer over your summer dresses or throw on as a swimsuit coverup? You got it! Have your heart set on a tunic to wear with leggings? Go for it! Instructions are included for this modification. Lace is fully charted and written, and there is also a schematic.

You’ll need approximately 800 (1000, 1100, 1200, 1300) yards of fingering weight yarn for your sweater, but I cannot recommend the Nebula highly enough. The sparkle isn’t overwhelming (even if you aren’t a girly girl like me!), and it comes in a stunning array of gorgeous colors.
