Note: The front and back of this pullover are made identically. Each piece is worked as a square from the center outward, then the sides of each square are worked in rows to create a rectangular shape for the body. The sides are eventually worked into the sleeves, shoulders, and neck.

Construction See notes in the above description. The sleeves are picked up and knit downwards to cuff.
