    CONSTRUCTION

    • This pullover is worked from the top down. The back is worked first to the underarm, with short rows to shape the shoulders (see Special Techniques: Short Rows: Wrap and Turn method). Stitches are picked up from the back shoulders for each side of the front and the fronts are worked separately to the end of the neck shaping, then joined and worked to the underarm. The back and front are joined and the body is worked circularly to the hem. Stitches are picked up from the armholes for the sleeves, which are worked circularly to the cuff.
    • This garment’s construction allows for a mixing-and-matching of body and sleeve sizes to tailor fit; see Schematic for dimensions.
