Notes This pullover is worked in a modular fashion. First the right front and back panels are worked from the bottom up. The left panels are worked by picking up stitches from the sides of the front and back panels and working outward. After the shoulders and sides are seamed, sleeve stitches are picked up and the sleeve is worked in the round from the top down.
