The Adriafil Tintarella Sintra pullover kit is worked seamlessly from the top down on circular needles.
Start at the neck edge with a rolled hem, then garter stitch neckband and continue in stocking stitch with raglan increases to the under arm.
The sleeve stitches are left on hold and additional stitches are cast-on for the body under the arm, then worked on circular needles seamlessly down to the hem.
The sleeve continues by picking up the corresponding cast-on stitches from the under arm and working on circular needles to the cuff. The colours are changed at the beginning of the round as required.
