NOTES

• The body of this pullover is worked in the round to the underarm, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up, with the sleeve cap worked flat. Decreases are worked on each side of the body to create an A-line shape.

• The charts are worked both in rounds and back and forth in rows. When working in rounds, work every chart row as a right-side row.

• During shaping, if there are not enough stitches to work a complete cable crossing, work the stitches of the partial cable as they appear.
