The body of this pullover is worked in the round to the underarm, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. Sts for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked in the rnd from the top down. For the lower body, use the two contrasting markers to mark the beginning

of the rnd and the opposite side. The cable and large tile charts are worked both in rnds and in rows. When working in the rnd, work every chart row as a rightside row. During shaping, if there are not enough stitches to work a complete 4-stitch cable, work the partial cable stitches in St st.
