Bibbe is an oversized dolman pullover worked in pieces from the bottom up. Increases are worked at the underarms to shape the sleeves. Short rows shape the shoulders. When working the front, the neck shaping is worked simultaneously with the short row shaping. We recommend you work the back piece first, as it will help in conceptualizing how the front is worked.

The sweater is finished with a 3 Needle Bind off at the shoulders and mattress stitch to join the side seams. Stitches are then picked up to work the large turtleneck and sleeves in the round.
