Notes from Pattern

  • This sweater is worked entirely in the round from the bottom up, using steeks for the front opening and the armhole and neck shapings; the Sleeves are
    worked in the round separately from
    the Body, using a steek to shape the
    sleeve cap.
  • The background color is A throughout.
  • The steek stitches are not included in the stitch counts; the number of steek stitches used is knitter’s choice.
  • The sweater is designed so that the patterns on the Body and Sleeves will line up at the armhole.
