PATTERN NOTES
This sweater is knit in pieces and sewn together. This garment features 3/4 length sleeves, a tunic length, and large pockets.
To ensure the best distribution of color when using this hand-dyed yarn, we recommend working from two balls of yarn at once, alternating every two rows. This tutorial HERE will show you how to do that.
