NOTES
Sweater is a drop shoulder oversized pullover knit bottom
up. First, stitches for front and back are cast on separately and worked flat in half-twisted 1x1 ribbing to form the hem. Then they are joined to work in the round. The main pattern formed by half twisted 1x1 rib in combination with left and
right twists. Then the front and back are again worked flat in two pieces from the underarms to the shoulders. After the shoulders are seamed, stitches are picked up to work a collar. The sleeves are picked up and worked in the round to the cuff. Short row shaping is used for shoulders and sleeve cap shaping. All slipped edge stitches are worked purlwise.
