This pullover is worked from the top down, beginning with the ribbed neckband. After the neckband is complete, neckband stitches for the right and left fronts are place on hold while the back is worked. Stitches are cast on for each back shoulder, and the back is worked across the shoulders and back neckband; the back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while stitches for the left front shoulder are picked up from the lelft back shoulder.
The left front neck is shaped using short rows, working a few more neckband stitches every other row. Once the curved neck shaping is complete, the neck slit is then worked to the base of the slit, and the stitches are placed on hold while the right front is worked to the same place. The fronts are then joined and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked to the bottom edge with body shaping for a slight A-line shape. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps.
