Notes

Pullover back and front pieces are worked flat, from the bottom up. Sleeves are worked circularly from the top down from picked-up stitches around armhole edge. Neckband is picked up from bound-off neckline stitches and worked circularly.

One strand each of Yarn A and Yarn B are held together throughout.

The Purl Stripe Pattern is a 20-row/round repeat; written instructions for working flat and circular are provided. The order of the purl rounds is different for the circular version since the sleeves are worked top-down.

A 1-stitch slipped selvedge is worked at each side edge of front and back pieces, as instructed within {brackets}.

For best results, use the Sloped Bind Off Method (see Special Techniques) for shoulder and neckline shaping.
