Cardigan is constructed as follows: Front bands are knitted to underarm, then left and right body sections are picked up along the inside edges of bands and knitted to center back and joined with the three-needle bind off. Sleeves are worked from the cuff to the underarm. For the yoke, stitches are picked up along the top edge of the body and joined with live sleeve and front-band stitches for a bottom up raglan. Once raglan shaping is complete, the bands are continued to the center back and joined with a three-needle bind off before being seamed into place.
