Notes This pullover is worked in pieces from the bottom up and seamed.

The front lower body is 1” shorter than the back. The front armholes are taller than the back armholes, and the front shoulders are bound off straight across the top. During finishing, the straight edge at the top of each front shoulder is sewn to the angled, shaped edge of the back shoulder. The wearer’s shoulder line at the top of the armhole will be forward of this shoulder seam.
