Notes: Eventide is worked from the bottom up. The first row of motifs are worked separately. Further rows of motifs are then worked, one at a time, by picking up sts between the motifs of the previous row. The final row uses half-motifs to create a full round, then the front and back are separated at the underarm and worked flat in rows to the shoulders. Shoulders are finished with the 3-needle cast-off. Sts are picked up around the armhole for the sleeve and at the neckband for the collar.
