The pullover is knit in one piece from the Bottom-Up with unusual shoulder shaping. This shoulder shaping was “un-vented” by Elizabeth Zimmermann (modified by Deb) which she called “nalgar” shoulder shaping. This is a very cool way to knit a sweater as the shoulder shaping also creates the sleeves of the sweater. No picking up for the sleeves! Neat. Instructions for chest sizes 40”, 47”, 50”, 54” and 57”.
