NOTES

Collar is worked back and forth in rows. Body and sleeves are worked in joined rounds from the top down.

Sleeve bands are worked in continuous rounds, do not join until instructed.

To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Cut old color.
