Seleel is a fingering-weight poncho, knit in the round from the bottom up. It has a lace border, encoded with the word “spiral”, and the ribbing spirals around the body up to the neck.
The sample pictured is knit in 1.5”/ 2 cm stripes that are designed to blend into each other. The turtleneck can either be worn unfolded to keep your neck warm, or folded down for a more classic turtleneck look.
Seleel would work well in a solid color with a contrasting border, stripes in 2 colors, or even color blocked. It is the ideal project for using up scrap yarn. I have provided the yardage required for each stripe and for a solid version. The multi stripe version makes a perfect scrap yarn project.
