NOTES
* This pullover is worked from the top down beginning with a provisional cast-on. The back saddles and back part of the sleeves are worked back and forth to the underarm, then the stitches are placed on a holder. Stitches for the front and front part of the sleeves are picked up from the provisional cast-on and worked to the underarm after shaping the neck. The front and back are then joined in the round, and the body is worked to the lower edge.
