PATTERN NOTES
This sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. First the back is cast on, short rows are worked to shape shoulders, and back is worked to underarms. Fronts are picked up from back and the shoulders and neckline are shaped. The front and back are then joined and the body is worked in the round with short rows shaping the back hem. Sleeves are picked up from armholes, with the caps being shaped with short rows, and then are worked in the round. Sleeve instructions are written to use DPNs, however an alternate method of working small circumferences can be used, such as Magic-Loop, or a short circular needle for the larger sizes.
