Knit the Look: Elena Perminova’s dolman pullover

how to knit Elena Perminova's boxy, dolman-sleeved sweater

This outfit of Elena Perminova’s is delightfully idiosyncratic, but the sweater itself is easy enough to come by. Boxy, dolman-sleeved sweaters like this have been trending for the past couple of years, so you have some options if you want to knit your own. I’d go with Ririko’s Relax pattern. For the closest approximation of Elena’s sweater, you’d want to knit it out of a yarn that’s classic and slightly crunchy, like Brooklyn Tweed Loft in Sweatshirt, and elongate both the body and sleeves. (Perhaps omitting the edge treatments in both places as well.) Another option is Joji Locatelli’s Boxy pattern.

To complete the look, see Vanessa’s recommendations here and here for stand-out trousers.

  1. I love that you do this! Love that Joji pattern, and those ASOS pants are really a great alternative to the McQueen pants. (And you save $1050+ in the process!)
