The body is knit in stockinette and features ribbing along the hem and sleeve cuffs. The sweater is finished off with an elegant square neckline.

The construction of this sweater is interesting and engaging. The sleeve panels are knit first, then the body stitches and sleeve stitches are picked up along the panel edge and worked from the top-down. The sides and sleeves are then seamed before picking up stitches to work the neck edging and sleeve cuffs.

There was an error in the written instructions for the orientation of the Sleeve Panels. We have corrected this and added a clarifying note. It now reads as follows:

Note: See schematic for a visual representation of how each Sleeve Panel should be oriented. With larger ndl and RS facing, beg at cast-on edge of one Sleeve Panel, pick up and knit 88 (93, 98, 106, 111, 116, 124, 128, 134) sts evenly along side edge of panel, cast on 47 (49, 49, 51, 51, 53, 53, 55, 55) Neck sts, pick up and knit 88 along side edge of second Sleeve Panel, beginning at the bind-off edge – 223 (235, 245, 263, 273, 285, 301, 311, 323) sts.
