Notes The body of this pullover is worked in the round from lower edge to the underarm. The sleeves are worked separately in the round, then the sleeves and body are joined to work the yoke. When working the yoke, change to a shorter circular needle when necessary.

The yoke is shaped with raglan decreases for the first 1.5” and the remainder is worked using round yoke shaping. Short-rows are used on the yoke to create the back neck height.
