From the Designer: Elroy was a more difficult character for me to design. I wanted something fun, challenging, and yet not too hard to work. I’ll confess that I had to keep my chart in front of me for most of the repeats! With short rows, triple yarnovers, and an eyelet edging, I think you’ll find this knit just challenging enough to hold your attention!
Don’t be afraid of this knit, and remember that it can be helpful to put a locking stitch marker in the first row of each repeat to help you keep track.
This pattern is meant for adventurous novices to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Both written and charted directions are included in this pattern. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
