This all-over stocking stitch jumper is knitted top-down. Saddle shoulder sections are made first. Short-row technique is used to create shoulder slants. The body is worked using circular needles to accommodate for a large number of stitches. Sleeves are then worked using DPNs. If you can knit using magic-loop method, you donít need to use DPNs for sleeves.
You can purchase a printed version of this copy from MagCloud.
