Two sleeves are worked, then body and sleeves are joined together to be worked in the round. The yoke is shaped by decreasing stitches at an even rate from the body only, and, when the correct depth is reached, the stitch count is reduced further for the neck.

Though pullover is pretty universal. In Chile, because of the influence of many immigrants from Britain, a sweater is ' una chompa ' — isn't that neat?
Pullover is absolutely part of the wardrobe here! But it needn't be wooly — it can be made of fleece synthetic or a lightweight cotton-jersey knit type thing with long sleeves. Has to pull over the head versus zipping or buttoning up the front. Sweater — any knitted thing for the top of your body. Short sleeves, long sleeves, button front, pullover, hooded, etc.
You specify the details. Sweater-vest, hooded sweater, turtleneck sweater, etc. Jumper — this is actually a dress no shorts attached—that is a jumpsuit as clarified above with no sleeves or collar; it is worn over a blouse or lightweight 'pullover' as we see in Catholic school uniforms here.
The word jumper is not used for that particular garment in American English, so there's one difference for you. As for pullover , I suppose that would be used to refer only to the subset of sweaters that one puts on by pulling them over one's head, which would exclude things like cardigans and some sweater vests.
In the UK jumper, sweater and pullover are different names for exactly the same thing. A cardigan has buttons. As others have said, all three mean the same thing in British English.
What nobody else has mentioned yet is that we might also call such a garment a jersey. Ireland is the same as BrE but we also have a gansey. Ganseys originated in Guernesy, jerseys in Jersey.
A gansey-load of something is quite a lot, the amount you could carry in your gansey. My daughter and I worked on a fantastic definition of "jumper" together, and it didn't make it to a post because I hadn't logged in first.
Here's my take on my own:. A jumper is an item of clothing that essentially provides, all in one piece, a skirt and a bodice. It is sleeveless and, by definition, is meant to be worn over a blouse or turtleneck. The jumper can hang from the shoulders to the hemline OR it can have a waistband. One can pull the jumper over one's head or, in the case of my daughter's jumper, step into it - this depends largely on the neckline. They can go down the back or on the side.
A jumper is closed all the way around - since I just read this evening that a pinafore my guess for what the British would call our jumper is not generally closed in the back although it could have apron-string ties to keep it in place - thank you, Wikipedia.
My daughter's jumper has a yoke-style top - that is it has a fairly open front; it has a waistband with both a zipper and button, on one side, for closure. The combination of the wide opening down the front and the zipper allows her to step into the garment through the top; the zipper closes up and the button secures the waistband. A jumper is, in my opinion, worn more often by girls than by grown women.
At my daughter's school, their skirts of their jumpers are to be "mid-knee" length; during the course of the year, they grow and the skirts get relatively shorter.
A pullover would be anything like a sweater or sweatshirt or fleece that goes over your head to go on. It wouldn't have buttons or a zipper except for decoration. I don't think that I would call any of my clothes a pullover, although I would know what someone means if they used the term.
As for sweater, I liked the definition from above: Sweater-vest, Hooded sweater, turtleneck sweater, etc. The extra warmth still holds those fine materials generally trap a lot of heat. The only exception would be some more decorative sweater made of a light-weight yarn and and open knit for warm-weather wear as I said, an exception. A long-sleeved or short-sleeved knitted garment pulled over the head is called a jersey. These can be somewhat formal, and are commonly part of school uniforms, or work attire, in winter, because of South Africa's relatively mild climate.
Terms like cardigan , and especially, pullover and jumper are rarer, or never used in everyday speech. A more casual, colourful upper garment, often made of synthetic fabrics is called a sweater , or if part of a tracksuit, then a tracksuit top. According to Wikipedia, these South African "sweaters" are called "sweatshirts" in the rest of the world. Heavier fabric casual sweaters, with or without hoods, are often called jackets.
