for Classic Elite Yarns   2013

9235-2 Paulette (age 10 up)

"A pullover with cowl neck, lace panel front, and unique ruffled side edge," says Helmke. This is a remarkable piece that depends on a simple architecture, cunningly wrought, for its impact. Essentially you knit the front and back with the sides short-rowed to give the ruffle effect; then you sew up the sides along the short-row lines to form the ruffles, leaving the top side sections open as armholes. Cowl is worked in the round. Not for beginners, but a treasure of a timeless piece when done.
