Saguaro

$8.00

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in turned rounds to the underarms, then the Front and Back are worked separately in rows.

Shoulder slopes are worked in groups of stitches of different height in groups of five at the beginning or end of the row. After a downward slope, the ball of yarn is taken through the last loop as if to fasten off. Then, start a new row at the top of the slope and float yarn to the new beginning of row location creating a short bridge. Shoulder slope markers are replaced to a new location every row. Treble stitches are used in the last three rows to raise the back for a better fit. Ribbing is added at the end and can be adjusted as needed.
