• This pullover is worked from the top down. The saddle shoulders are worked back and forth, then stitches for the back and fronts are picked up along the edges of the saddles and worked back and forth to the underarm. The pieces are then joined and the lower body is worked in the round to the lower edge.
• Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked from the top down in the round with short-rows to shape the sleeve cap.
