Notes
This garment is worked in one piece, commencing at the bottom front. You will cast on sts to increase for the sleeves, cast off for and back on again for the neck section, cast off to decrease for sleeves, then work straight to bottom back. The side and under sleeve seams complete the garment. The motifs can be worked using the intarsia method or embroidered on afterwards.
