NOTES

  • This pullover is worked in the round from the bottom up. A provisional cast-on is used for the hems. The neckline is folded to the wrong side and sewn in place during finishing.

  • The stockinette portion of this sweater stretches (especially lengthwise) when blocked, but relaxes to its unblocked length when dry.

  • During shaping, if there are not enough stitches to work each decrease with its corresponding yarnover, work the remaining stitches in stockinette stitch instead.
