Saddle Seam Pullover
Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Spring 2006: “Saddle shoulders, an overlapping neckband and a textured stitch pattern lift this easy pullover out of the ordinary. Using slipped stitches and yarn carried on the right side, the stitch pattern will keep you attentive without trying your patience. Therese Chynoweth calls this an “I hate finishing” sweater: the body is knitted in the round and the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and knitted down to the cuff.”
Finished Size: 40 (44, 48, 52, 56)” (101.5 112, 122, 132, 142 cm) chest circumference.
Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted (100% wool; 245 yd 224 m/100 g): #107 silver sage, 6 (6, 7, 8, 9) balls.
Needles: Sizes 7 (4.5 mm) and 9 (5.5 mm): 16” (40-cm) and 32” (80-cm) circular (cir) and set of 4 double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Note from Interweave Knits, Spring 2006: “When working the pattern chart, if slip stitches fall at the beginning and end of the same round, work the first and last stitch of round in stockinette stitch. When working back and forth, if first or last stitch is a slipped stitch, work that stitch in stockinette stitch.”
