Designer: Triona Murphy
The sweater is worked seamlessly from the bottom up. The body is worked back and forth to the armholes, then the back and fronts are worked separately with set-in sleeve shaping. After the shoulders are joined, stitches are picked up around the armholes, a sleeve cap is shaped with short-rows, then the sleeve is worked in the round to the cuff. The only finishing is picking up stitches and working the neck and front bands.
A knit selvage stitch is worked at the edge of each piece, for ease of picking up sts later.
While working neck shaping, if there aren’t enough sts to work the whole 13-st Ribbed Mock Cable panel, work these sts as they present themselves (knit the knits and purl the purls).
