Gortenzia pullover is worked top-down in rounds, completely seamlessly, starting with the neckband. The seamless saddle-shoulder construction in this design is combined with contiguous construction to shape the yoke and the sleeve caps. The body of the sweater is worked with an A-line shaping up to the bottom hemline. At the beginning of the hemline the stitches are separated for front and back, and each part is worked separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked top-down in rounds to desired length and finished with cuffs in a matching to hemline pattern.
