Notes from the Designer:

In the ballet world, Giselle is a dark and twisted tale of unrequited love, madness, and death. In the knitting world, the Giselle sweater is also full of dark twists and turns, but rather than leading to madness (at least I certainly hope not!), they lead to a lovely, delicate lace yoke and twisted stitch link detail down the sleeves and side seams. The garment has two versions, both of which are worked seamlessly top down. Version 1 starts with a delicate twisted edge, which is repeated at the hem and the edge of the bell sleeves. Version 2 starts and finishes with a pretty twisted rib. Both versions can be customized to suit your sleeve and body length tastes.

  • Additional length can be added but will require additional yardage.
  • Sample is shown on a 34” bust with 2” of positive ease. 
  • Here is a video demonstrating how to knit the Twisted Edge. 
  • The lace pattern is modified from a lace chart found in the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible by Hitomi Shida.

I recently moved to a much warmer climate. As the ocean breeze is a bit cool in the winter I was looking for a lighter sweater pattern. This is perfect! I haven't made it yet but can't wait to pick out some yarn.

Giselle Sweater Pattern

Fun knit! Sweater isn't done yet; I am 6" past the armhole. Short-rows in the neck ribbing - what a great idea! Love the detail on the sides (and sleeves). Breaks up the monotony of stockinet knitting (: Looking forward to wearing this beautiful sweater!
