This sweet pullover has an unusual construction. It is worked seamlessly from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round to the underarms, where the front and back are separated and worked back and forth. Stitches are then cast on for the shoulder and the shoulders are worked back and forth in the snowdrop pattern, joining the front to the back. More stitches are then picked up for the sleeves which are worked in the round, while continuing with the snowdrop pattern. the neckline is finished neatly with an i-cord bind off.
