Neona is worked seamlessly from the top down. Knitting starts from a cast-on at the shoulders. Short rows are used to shape the shoulders, then both parts are joined to work the back down to the underarm. Stitches are then picked up at the shoulders to work the front. The work is then joined at the underarm and worked in the round to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up around each armhole and sleeves are worked from the top down in the round to the cuffs. An optional cowl neck can be worked last (or leave the neck raw as shown in the first image) - please note that you may need an extra skein for this.
