The sweater is worked circularly from the hem to the armscye. At the armscye, the body is split into front and back sections, which are worked flat separately. The sleeves are formed by casting on stitches at each side of the body sections, and then shaped slightly by decreasing at the points where the cast-on stitches meet the body on the following rows. A self-finishing edging is worked along each sleeve at each end of the body pieces. Stitches are bound off and decreased on both the front and back body to form a shallow neckline. Fewer rows are worked on the front body than on the back body to prevent the front neck from riding up. To finish, the sleeves are seamed together, the shoulders are joined with a three-needle bind-off, and an applied i-cord edging is worked around the neckline.
