NOTES

  • This pullover is worked in two pieces from the bottom up. Increases at the sides shape the dolman sleeves. After the sleeves are worked, shortrows shape the shoulders. Stitches are picked up along the edges in a contrasting color.
  • A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
