Note: If you missed the first post in our series and are brand-new to crochet, we recommend first reading our Chain Stitch tutorial, as this tutorial builds on skills learned in that post. One last note, we're using American Crochet terminology for these tutorials, and in-pattern for Elara—visit this page for a breakdown between UK and US crochet terminology, if you're familiar with the former.
Welcome to the first of our Elara Pullover tutorials! When this pattern was published, we'll admit to being hopeful more knitters, or crafters who haven't tried it in a long time, might see crochet in nightshades and decide to give it a go. A warm thank you to everyone who reached out to us, in the hopes we'd be able to help explain some of the crochet basics, so they might be able to tackle this design.
