The back and front bodice pieces of this pullover are worked back and forth from the waist up. The neck stitches are placed on holders, then the sides are continued to the shoulders and joined using three-needle bind-off. Stitches are picked up around the neck opening for a narrow rolled neckband. Stitches for the side extensions and sleeves are picked up along the edges of the front and back and worked back and forth to the side seams, where stitches are bound off for the sides. The remaining stitches are worked back and forth for the sleeves. After the sleeve and side seams are sewn, stitches are picked up along the lower edge for the skirt.
