Notes
— The body and sleeves of this pullover are worked in the round from the bottom up. The sleeve cuffs and hem begin with a long-tail cast-on, followed by 1x1 ribbing.
— 2” (5 cm) before finishing the sleeves and body, a 14-round colorwork pattern is worked. The pieces are then joined to work the yoke. A few raglan decreases shape the yoke, and the colorwork pattern is worked with integrated decreases. Short-rows shape the back neck, and the collar is finished in 1x1 ribbing.
