NOTES

• The center front panel of this pullover is worked first in a modular fashion. The rest of the body is worked separately back and forth in one piece from the lower edge to the underarms. The work is then divided for working the fronts and back separately. The sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up, with the raglan sleeve cap worked flat. After all pieces are completed, they are seamed together.

• All charts begin with a wrong-side row.

• Slip stitch at beginning of rows purl-wise with yarn in front.

• A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.

• Pick up and knit stitches with right side of work facing.
