Belu is the Chichewa word for Bell. I am completely fascinated with world languages and love to learn about different cultures. This design incorporates my passion for languages and my love of cultures by blending the bell shape design with a Bohemian style eyelet bands around the neck and sleeve (add ribbons through the eyelets if desired) with a simple name pulled from the Bantu culture that helped shaped the Appalachian region where my mother’s family planted its roots.
I really enjoy creating raglan style pullovers with circular yokes. This finished design has crisp increase edges where the sleeves and body sections meet while allowing for a completely seamless sweater. I also intentionally kept the body simple so it can be adjusted for a perfect length or even extended into a dress if desired.

Flattering sweater love the pattern
Love this pattern! I haven't gotten a chance to make it yet, but I can't wait to! I already have the yarn for it, just need time. Plus I'm working on something else. I can't wait to work with this yarn it's so incredibly soft n just so beautiful! Just love it!!
I am excited about trying this pattern. It will be the first time I've branched out to make something for myself.
My first introduction to this yarn. I'm ok with making hats n scarfs and afghans. Baby sweaters are the only clothing I've made. I want to have the confidence and know the pattern works before I take that first hook in this quality yarn.
I have to say that this pattern is one of my favorite. Well written and easy to understand. I am not a sweater person myself, but this pattern stole my heart. I’m glad expression Fibers give you the break to get it for free before she put a price on the pattern. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece!
Great pattern. Love those bell sleeves.
This sweater is belutiful
