Do you feel like knitting something different and challenging? That is the Elur sweater knitting pattern for children.
In the knitting pattern you will find the instructions to knit it from size 12 – 24 months (2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5-6, 6-7) years.
This pattern is part of my Mini&Me knitting collection in which you will have the version adapted for adults. You can check it here.
In this pattern you will find the yoke graphed for each size. You will see how the yoke grows from the neckline as the openwork is created. Short rows technique is included at the beginning to make it fit better.
I do recommend that you have an intermediate level of knitting, so you don’t get frustrated. The lace is formed with increases and decreases on the right side and the wrong side, so if you are a very beginner, you may find it frustrating and that is the last thing I would like.
The pattern has been tech edited to check for any mistakes and tested by several testers to make sure they could follow it without any problems.
If you want more information go to the construction notes, prerequisites, materials and gauge tabs above.
Happy knitting experience!

The sweater is a yoke, top down construction worked in the round. After the collar, there are some
short rows to make the back part of the sweater higher. Once short rows are finished, the rest of it is
worked in the round. Along the yoke, the chart is repeated 3 times for the front and back and 2 times for
sleeve yoke part.
Once the chest width is reached, divide for sleeves and body, placing sleeves on stitch holders or
waste yarn and continuing with body only in the round.
What do you need to know?
Work in the round, to knit and purl, increases and decreases. The pattern is charted only. I include one video to help you with it, if it is your first time.
