This top is knitted in the round from the bottom up with a Celtic-inspired cable panel along the center front, as well as waist shaping for a flattering silhouette. A complementary cable panel adorns each sleeve, which is also worked in rounds to the underarm.

The sleeves and body are joined at the yoke and worked in a single piece to the neck, while the sleeve cables continue into the yoke for an interesting design feature. A portion of the front cable is repeated on the back of the yoke for a tattoo-like surprise.

on p. 112, Body, paragraph 2:

Work in twisted rib for 10 ends as follows:
Rnd 1: K1, p2, k2; rep from to last 3 sts, p2, k1.
Rnd 2: K1, p2, Tw2; rep from to last 3 sts, p2, removing marker, Tw2, place marker back in the original place.

Note: You can move marker to make it easier to do Tw2 while you are working the rib, but put it back after all 10 rnds are done and you begin the Front Cable panel. Otherwise, the rib and panel do not line up.
