Pattern Notes

This pullover is worked in the round from the bottom up. Short-rows are used to create a hemline that is a bit lower in the back. Because of the nature of the yarn, edges are left raw. However, if substituting for a non-linen or silk yarn, you will need to work a couple rounds of garter stitch at the hem to keep from rolling. The fronts and back are separated at the underarms and worked separately. A V-neckline is created by working pleats at each front shoulder.
