Lulu is a top-down, seamless knit with set-in sleeves and English tailored shoulders. The construction means your options are wide open; knit her as a tunic or keep going and knit a dress. Likewise with the sleeves, knit them to the exact length you prefer. And when you BO just block and she’s ready to wear!

Note About Yardage:

The amount of yarn will vary greatly depending upon the length of body and sleeves. (Because you are knitting top-down, your sleeves/body may be determined by the amount of yarn you have; when you run out of yarn, that will be your length!)

The pattern can be knit in any yarn that gets gauge using a minimum of 1000 (1200, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600) yards. This should yield a tunic length body with elbow length sleeves. When in doubt, buy more and ask your LYS if you can return or exchange unused skeins.
