NOTES

This sweater is worked from side to side in rows, so the first piece that you work will form the Front and Back piece run­ning along one side of the neck­line, and will be folded at the shoul­der. See the di­a­gram over­leaf for the di­rec­tion of work, and where you need to join the yarn af­ter each sec­tion. The Sleeves are worked sep­a­rately, and the ruf­fles are added at the end.

Ch4 at the be­gin­ning of a row counts as a dtr. Ch1 at the be­gin­ning of a row does not count as a st.
