Pattern Notes

Sweater is worked flat from the bottom up in one piece with one side seam joining the front and back MC sides. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Sleeves are worked from the cuff up in the rnd with sleeve caps.

Stripes are worked in the intarsia method using a separate yarn source for each color stripe and each MC section. When changing color, place old color over new color on WS of work to twist (interlock) strands and to avoid holes forming at color change edges.

Sweater is worked in St st with a Rev St st selvedge st at each end.
