Construction Notes: This pattern is written to be worked on two circular needles, mostly in the round. This design starts with the turtleneck and works down. The shoulders are knit out from the center. Stitches are picked up from the shoulder panels and worked down for the back and the front, which are joined to work in the round from the underarms to the lower edge. Stitches are picked up at the sides and worked out for the sleeves.
