Elah Sweater by Isabell Kraemer KAL with Monica

From: $30.00

Join our group in person to knit this fantastic sweater together! The pattern is available for separate purchase on Ravelry here.  If you would like, you can purchase the pattern at Mother Knitter when you select your yarn.

We’ll use three sessions over 4 weeks to knit this beautiful fall-transition cardigan. The cost for the KAL is $30 (plus pattern + yarn purchased at Mother Knitter). Although registration is online under classes,  this is NOT a class, it is a group knit-a-long where everyone is working on the same sweater.

Elah is worked seamlessly from the top down. Fronts are worked in lace pattern, while the back is worked in Stockinette stitch. Knitting starts with the provisional cast on of the shoulders for the fronts (you will first work the right front, then the left front). Once the short row shaped shoulder slope is done, the front is worked flat to underarm. Shoulder stitches are picked up from the provisional CO of both front shoulders to work the back to the same length. At underarm both fronts and back are joined to work the body top down back and forth to the bottom hem. As the front ribbing is built in, there is no finishing required. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the arm openings to work the sleeves in Stockinette stitch top down in rounds to the cuffs.
