CONSTRUCTION

The pullover is knitted seamlessly from the top-down. The neck shaping is knitted flat before joining in the round. The yoke is shaped with raglan increases. The sleeves are then put on hold on a piece of waste yarn and new stitches are cast on for the underarms. The body is worked in stockinette stitch in the round until the hem. The hem is worked in two-color brioche rib. The sleeves are worked in the round and the long cuffs have a two-color brioche pattern. Lastly, the neckband is picked from the body and worked in two-color brioche rib.
