Ranunculus is a top-down round yoke pullover with lace and textured stitches. The round yoke has ample depth and finished pullover has cropped length so that you can lay it over dresses or high-waisted skirts and pants. If crops aren’t your style, please adjust body to your favorite length.

You can choose from

  • smaller boat neckline or
  • wider boat neckline,


  • short sleeves,
  • long puff sleeves with diagonal cuff line or
  • long puff sleeves with normal cuff line.

My both samples with long sleeves (white and red) have diagonal cuff line.

The pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down.

It is a surprisingly quick project at a very loose gauge with big size needles. The combination of thin yarn and big needle gives light, transparent and airy texture to this pullover.

Enjoy kintting!

Yarn: Lace, light fingering to worsted weight yarn. The degree of transparency depends on the weight of yarn.

Sizes: One size (XS–M) in the pattern, finished bust circumference is 129 cm (50 ¾“). ease = 35 to 55 cm

Larger bust size pattern: You can also download separated modification pattern for larger bust size. Finished bust circumference: 140 (146, 151, 157, 160, 166) cm /55 (57 1⁄2, 59 1⁄2, 61 3⁄4, 63, 65 1⁄4)“, to fit an actual bust circumference of: 97 (102, 107, 112, 117 122) cm / 38 (40, 42, 44, 46, 48)”.

Yardage: 400 m (438 yds) for short sleeves, 560 m (613 yds) for long sleeves, excluding yarn for knitting swatch.

I have not calculated yardage for larger bust size pattern at the moment. Please purchase this pattern only if you can accept this condition. If you will knot approximately yardage for your size, I will gladly help you.

Needles: 6 mm (US 10) circular needle as main needle 100 cm (40“) or longer. 5 mm (US 8) needle for finishing sleeve (only for long sleeves). Adjust needle size if necessary to get gauge.

Notions: 5 stitch markers, 1 for marking „end of round“ and 4 for „raglan & center front“ (I recommend to use a different color marker for end of round), tapestry needle, waste yarn, crochet hook (only for smaller neckline)

大きなサイズへのアレンジ:大きなバストサイズ(97〜122 cm)のラナンキュラスの編み方を載せたパターンをリリースしました。このパターンはオリジナルのパターンとは別ファイルのPDFです。自分のサイズよりも大きなサイズで編んで、オーバーサイズのセーターとして着ることもできます。大きなサイズのテストをして下さったみなさんのプロジェクトが、ラベリーで閲覧出来ますので、よかったらのぞいてみて下さいね。

糸の量:半袖は約 400 m、長袖は約 560 m 必要です。

ゲージ:14目 × 20段 = 10 cm (水通し後の往復メリヤス編み)

針:13号(6 mm)の輪針をメインに使います。長袖を編む場合は、最後の工程で、10号(5 mm) も使います。ゲージに合わせて、針のサイズを調整して下さい。

その他:マーカー5つ(段の終わりに1つ、ラグラン&前中心に4つ、段の終わりだけ別色のマーカーを使うとわかりやすいです)、 とじ針、余り糸、かぎ針(小さめのネックラインの作り目のみ)。
