PATTERN NOTES  
The body of this sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up. Front and back are separated at the armholes and are knit back and forth in rows. The sleeves are knit flat from the bottom up.  

The color changes in this sweater use the Fair Isle method of changing colors. Hold both colors together throughout the row/round. Because the pattern is easy to memorize and "see " in the stitches, Checkerboard Pullover is a good first colorwork pattern.
