Notes
This sweater is worked in the round from the top down. Short rows are worked across the back for slight shaping. The slip stitch motif is carried down through the yoke, down the body and repeated on the sleeves. The sleeves stitches are put on hold after the yoke, then later picked up and worked down to the cuff.
