NOTES

  • The body of this pullover is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarm, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. After the shoulders are joined, sleeve stitches are picked up and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
  • Use the Icelandic bind-off throughout.
