The sweater is worked seamlessly in one piece from the top-down, based on the contiguous set-in sleeve method by Susie Myers.
The neck is shaped by short rows while working the shoulder increases and faux seam stitch throughout. Continue with the yoke working in the round again with sleeve increases and a few radial increases for the body. The sleeve stitches are then placed on hold, underarm stitches are cast on, and you continue to work the body with a little A-line shaping to the bottom .
After the body is completed, sleeve stitches are placed back on the needles to be worked top down in the round.
