Kore is a very simple and playful pullover. The garment is worked flat with Portuguese-style garter stitches. However, you can also knit it with conventional garter stitches, and the pattern provides instructions to guide you. You will create 4 vertical lines with slip stitches throughout the body, where you can knit the ruffles or lines as accents for the garment.

The name Kore came from Greek Mythology, and it is another name for the Goddess of spring and nature, Persephone. I wanted to create a garment that represents blooming. As in the mythology, spring arrives when Kore returns from the underworld. You will feel excited when the ruffles are done, just like blooming flowers. So, the name Kore seemed to be the perfect one for this light and playful piece.

For the last, this pattern has a crocheted version too. You can both knit and crochet this top. The discount is available for set purchases.
