Note This asymmetrical pullover is worked in the round from the bottom up. The wide panel at the hem is first worked sideways. Stitches for the body are picked up along one edge and shaped with short-rows to make the left side of the garment longer, then the body is worked in the round to the underarm. The front and back are worked separately back and forth above the joined, sleeve stitches are picked up and the sleeve cap is shaped with short-rows. The sleeve is then worked in the round from the top down.
