Elmire is a sweater with a very feminine fit that knits from the bottom up. The ribbing on the lower back is slightly longer than the ribbing on the front, and both sides form a slit. 
The textured stitch punctuates the knitting, and is very easy to knit, working every other row and quickly memorized.
Sleeves are set-in sleeves knitted from the shoulder to the wrist, forming the sleeve head with shortened rows, with a pleated detail at the top.
