FINISHING
Step 1: Sew Front and Back together at shoulders.
Step 2: Neck Edging
Note: Instructions are provided for the number of neck edging sts picked up by the designer. Everyone’s tension is slightly different though! We suggest that you pick up any number of sts evenly spaced around the Pullover neck that create a smooth edge. To keep the edges of the neck even, just be sure to that you pick
up the same number of sts along the right front neck edge as you picked up for the left front neck edge.
From RS with circular needle, beg at right shoulder seam, pick up and k31 (34, 37) sts evenly spaced across back neck, 60 (64, 68) sts along left front neck edge, 1 (2, 1) st(s) at center front of V-neck, 60 (64, 68) sts along right front neck edge – 152 (164, 174) sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle.
Purl 1 rnd.
Bind off as if to knit.
Step 3: Place markers on side edges of Front and Back about 6 1/2 (7 1/2, 8 1/2) in. (16.5 (19, 21.5) cm) below shoulder seams. Matching the center of the top of the Sleeve to the shoulder seam of the Pullover, sew Sleeves between markers.
Step 4: Match top edge of ribbing on Front and on Back.
Note that Back is 6 in. (15 cm) longer than Front. Sew Front to Back at sides from top of ribbing to underarm, then sew Sleeve seams.
Weave in ends.
