Cadillac Mountain is worked in pieces from the bottom up. Once the fronts and back are complete, the shoulders are joined using a 3-Needle Bind-Off. Stitches are then picked up to work the armhole edgings. The buttonband is picked up and worked in one piece.

While the pattern calls for circulars, you may work back and forth on straights. You will still need the longer, smaller circular for working the buttonband.
