Hi all! Join my Amanita Knits Ravelry group for Lorelei Knit-a-long!

Femininity and style in one garment. Simple pullover with an eye-catching lace panel which looks like sea waves or lustrous scales of a mermaid’s tail. Waist shaping for a better and more romantic fit. All these make you want to live in it.


This sweet pullover is knitted seamlessly in the three directions. First, you make lace panel sideways. After binding-off this piece, you pick up sts from one side and knit shoulders bottom up. After finishing the collar you pick up sts from the second side of the panel and knit body and sleeves top down.
