Brackenber is a comfortable pullover in a classic fit. The sleeves and body are worked in the round, then joined at the armholes to work the yoke in one piece. The armhole shaping is worked as a seamless set-in sleeve. When increasing or decreasing, you may work a partial repeat (4 sts) of the pattern. When there are too few sts to work partial repeats, work in MC. When working the seamless set-in sleeves, decreases are worked on either side of the markers to shape the yoke. You will decrease the body first, then shape the sleeves.
