If you are wondering what a saddle shoulder is, the 'saddle' is a strip of knitting that runs from the base of the neckline to the top of the shoulder. You begin by knitting these strips for each shoulder and then putting the ends on waste yarn. Later these live stitches are picked up for the sleeves.
Once the saddles are made, stitches are picked up along the saddle's edges and cast on between the saddles to make the neckline which grows into the pullover's front and back. When the front and back are complete, sides are seamed up to the armhole opening and stitches are picked up to add the sleeves. Simple and unique.
The saddles have an openwork detail on them which will continue down the sleeves for added interest. The pullover will have a shorter length, slim fitting sleeves and the wide neckline will be finished in stocking stitch and allowed to gently roll.
