CONSTRUCTION NOTES:

The pullover is worked top-down. The neck band is worked in the round first, then the neckline and shoulder drop are created with short rows at the same time as the gathers on the shoulders. The yoke and sleeve caps are then worked in the round to the underarm, where the body is set aside. The sleeves are worked back and forth and seamed with a special technique (zip-up seam). On completion of both sleeves, the body is worked to the hem in the round.
