Amy Gunderson's Dichotomy is worked flat in 2 pieces from the bottom up. Sleeve cuffs are worked by picking up stitches off the sides of the body piece and knitting downward. A circular needle is used only to accommodate the large number of stitches. The color changes in this sweater are achieved by using the intarsia method. When switching from one color to another, bring the new color up and around the old color putting a single twist in the yarns. This will prevent any holes from forming in the work. The CC1 "line" is formed by working increases and decreases in the surrounding blocks of color. There is no cabling in this pullover. Puppy not included.
