Notes The body of the pullover is worked from the bottom up and begins by working back and forth in rows to make the vent; it is then worked in the round to the underarms, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked from the bottom up and begin with a provisional cast-on; they are worked back and forth in rows at first to make thumbholes, then worked in the round to the underarms with the sleeve cap worked flat. The provisional cast-on is removed and the cuffs are worked in the round from the top down.

The sample (size 37.75”) used almost all of four skeins of MC. Consider purchasing an extra skein as insurance.
