This sweater is knit flat, sideways in two pieces. Each piece is worked from the sleeve cuff to the center of the body. After both the Left and Right sides are completed, they are joined at the center front and back using the three-needle bind-off. Then the sleeve and side seams are joined. Finally, stitches around the neckband and hemline are picked up and knit in the round.
Please note, Offbeat is a self-striping yarn. To ensure your project looks as close to the sample as possible, when breaking and rejoining yarn, be sure to visually color match the point at which you’re rejoining. This may require you to wind off yarn, but the results are well worth your effort.
In this pattern, slip all stitches purlwise with yarn held towards wrong side of work.
