This seamless jumper is worked mostly in the round in a variety of different written and/or charted stitch patterns from the bottom up. You will first work the bottom section of the jumper in the round, before splitting at the underarm point to work the back panel flat, followed by the front panel. You will join the shoulder seams to create the neck and armholes using the Three Needle Bind Off method. The neck trim and sleeves are worked in the round by picking up stitches along the neck hole/armhole edges.
