Andelin is a seamless tunic for girls. It is worked in the round from the bottom up until the armholes where it is separated to back and front and worked flat from that point. The tunic has two pleats, one at the middle of the front and the other at the middle of the back. Andelin has a V neck.
The neckline and the pleats are bordered by a modest lace stitch pattern, the rest of the tunic is in stockinette stitch. The neckline and the armholes are framed with an I-cord.
Lace panel is worked in the round until the armholes, then after the separation of front and back it is worked flat. Written instructions for both are provided to make reading of the charts easier.
