NOTES

  • This pullover is worked in pieces and seamed.

  • Count stitches after Rows 1 or 3 of main pattern.

  • After every 5 repeats of the increase row, half of a pattern repeat has been increased at each end of the row. At that point, change the increased stitches to work in the pattern. When doing so, you’ll need to skip 2 rows of the pattern instructions. For example, if your fifth increase row was worked on Row 3 of the pattern, the following row worked even will be Row 2, skipping Rows 4 and 1.
