NOTES

The body of this pullover is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarms. The sleeves are worked separately in the round, then the sleeves and body are joined to work the yoke.

When working the yoke shaping, change to shorter circular needle when necessary.

The body can be lengthened or shortened, and sleeves can be lengthened, in multiples of 12 rounds, which is about 1 1/2" in length.

The Cable and Bobble and Lace charts alternate around the sleeves. When working increases, first work them into the Cable and Bobble (Lace, Lace) chart that already has partial stitches until that chart is complete, then begin the next Lace (Cable and Bobble, Cable and Bobble) chart. For sizes 36 1/4" and 43 1/2", there won't be enough stitches increased to complete the full width of the chart. For size 52 1/2", increase to complete the Cable and Bobble chart, then begin the next Lace chart (which won't be completed).
