This pullover is worked seamlessly from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round to the underarms, then the back and front are divided and worked separately to the shoulders. The shoulders are shaped with short rows, then joined using the three-needle bind off. Stitches are picked up around the armhole edges for the sleeves, and the cap is shaped using short rows, then the sleeve is worked in the round for about an inch.
