  1. Pullover is worked in 4 pieces, Back, Front, and 2 Sleeves.
  2. Front and Back are made by working a striped Square. Following a diagram, stitches for the next Square are picked up along one side edge of the previous Square. Additional Squares are then added in designated order following the diagram. Side and armhole shaping is worked by increasing or decreasing sts while working the Squares.
  3. One half of Sleeve is worked, then sts for the second half are picked up along one edge and worked in perpendicular direction. Sts are picked up along edge of both halves for the Sleeve cap (top of Sleeve).
