Lulu

$8.00 USD

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!

For long sleeves and longer length, approx 1350 (1450, 1550, 1650, 1750, 1850) yds/1235 (1326, 1418, 1509, 1600, 1920) m

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.
