Lion Brand Construction Notes:

Pullover is worked in one piece from neck down. A smaller circular needle is used for the neck and yoke (upper portion of the Pullover) to create a slightly firmer knit fabric.

At the underarms, sts are placed on holders for sleeves, then the body is continued in one piece.

When body has been completed, sts are picked up for the sleeves, then sleeves are worked in the rnd down to lower edge. Sleeves are designed to end a few inches (cm’s) above wrist. If desired, continue in St st to make longer Sleeves.

The lower edges are designed to roll softly.

The stitch pattern in yoke has been modified for larger sizes, and will vary slightly from the photograph.
