NOTES

  • This pullover is worked in one piece from the top down with round yoke shaping. Short-row shaping is used to create a more comfortable fit in the back. The sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.

Errata:

On round 23 of the chart, the k2tog (second st from the end of the chart) should not be there. Instead, this should simply be a knit stitch. This is an increase round, so the yarnovers are not balanced by decreases.
