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

About the gauge: with the last pictures I tried to show the fabric - you can’t look through (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).
