Top-Down Half-Zip Pullover

This wonderful pullover is worked from the top down, with raglan shaping to shape the yoke. You can customize the length of the sweater and sleeves to fit your needs, and there are no seams to sew when you’re finished knitting!

Yoke shaping occurs at different intervals for front/back and sleeves for most sizes; shaping information is given in a table, with detailed shaping notes. The piece begins with the yoke, then divides for sleeves and body. The body is worked first in the round to the bottom edge, then the sleeves are worked in the round to the cuffs.

The patterns are presented in written format.
