NOTES

  • The body and sleeves of this pullover are worked in the round from the bottom up to the yoke, then the pieces are joined for working the raglan yoke.
  • The marker at the beginning of the round should be a different color than the ones used for the raglan shaping.
  • During shaping, if there are not enough stitches to work each lace pattern decrease with its companion yarnover, work the remaining stitch(es) as they appear.
