Notes The lace inset panel is first worked and set aside. Then the body of the pullover is worked from the bottom up, flat at first to make a side vent and then the work is joined in the round, at the same time joining the lace panel with the body. The pullover is worked in the round up to the underarms, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked from the bottom up in the round, with the sleeve cap worked back and forth in rows.
