The pullover is worked seamlessly from top to bottom, beginning with the contiguous set-in sleeves method of shaping developed by Susie Myers. You will start working in the round for tunnel neck opening and increase stitches to shape shoulders. You will also shape front neck with short rows. The front and back are worked separately to be joined at underarm. Once that happens the sweater is worked in the round. The sleeves are worked in the round too and they begin with a few short rows that aid the fit. The whole swetare is worked in a combination of ribbing, Stockinette and an easy lace panel.
