This cropped pullover with a split high/low hem is meticulously crafted in a seamless fashion. The process begins by working it in the round from the bottom up. After reaching the armholes, the pullover is divided, and the subsequent sections are worked flat. To shape the deep shoulders, German short rows are skillfully employed, enhancing the overall silhouette. The shoulders are later joined using a three-needle bind-off technique for a neat finish. Continuing the seamless construction, stitches for the sleeves are deftly picked up around the armhole and worked in the round until reaching the cuff. This cohesive approach results in a stylish pullover with a well-defined structure and a harmonious blend of techniques.
