NOTES
Body is worked in one piece to the underarm, then divided and fronts and back worked separately to the shoulder. Circular needles are used to accommodate the width of the piece. Shoulders are shaped with German short rows, then joined using a three-needle bind off. Sleeves are worked flat from the wrist up and seamed. Ribbed front bands are knitted in one with the body. Work with one strand of each yarn held together throughout.
