Unbound is a top-down, seamless pullover with deep V-neck and longer back.
Upper back part is worked first from shoulders to the underarms, the shoulders are shaped with short rows.
The stitches of the fronts are picked up from the cast on edges of the back shoulders. Fronts are worked separately to the bottom of the V-neck.
After the front pieces are complete the underarm „seams” are closed with 3-needle bind off.
Then back and fronts are joined together and body is worked in the round to the side vents, where the pieces are separated again and the back and front hem is worked back and forth in rows with slipped stitch edges.
The stitches of the cuffs are picked up around the armhole and they are worked in the round.
