The sweater is worked in the round from the top down, beginning with 1x1 twisted rib for the double folded neckband. Next, German short rows are worked to shape the back of the neck with raglan increases. The yoke is then worked in the round, with raglan increases to the underarm. The sleeve stitches are set aside and the body is worked in the round. At the hem, the piece is split into front and back. Both front and back are worked back and forth at once, forming the slits at the sides. Sleeves are worked top-down in the round.
