Notes
This pullover is worked top-down as follows: the back is worked first down to the armholes, then the fronts are picked up from the cast on row (at the shoulders) and worked down to the armholes and joined with the back. When the neck shaping is complete, the body is joined to work in the round. It is worked in the round until the vented hems, where it is once again worked back and forth. The sleeves are picked up and worked down. The neckband is picked up and worked afterwards.
