This sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down and uses the contiguous set in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. Knitting starts with the cast-on of the stitches for the back, the shoulders and some first stitches of the front. You will increase before and after the shoulder stitches on every row until you reach the final cross-back width. From that point increases are done to shape the sleeve caps, at the same time the neck shaping is done by adding stitches to the fronts. Once all shaping is complete, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold, to work the body first top down to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up again to work the sleeves in the round top down to the cuffs. Neck finishing is worked last.
