This sweater is worked in the round from the top down. It begins with the back shoulders which are worked flat to the underarms. Then, the right front is picked up from the back shoulder and worked flat to the length of the neck drop, then placed on hold. The left front is also picked up from the back shoulders and worked flat to the neck drop, then the right and left fronts are joined and worked to the underarms. At the underarms, the front and back are joined together. Waist decreases are worked into the body. The stitches for the collar are picked up and worked flat and shaped with short rows. Stitches for the armholes are picked up and knit in the round.
