Notes
The front and back yokes are knit flat side-to-side from the right armhole to the left. The yokes are cast on and worked simultaneously until the neck hole; the yokes are worked separately in order to shape the neck, and then are worked together again once the neck shaping is completed. Stitches for the upper body are then picked up from the yokes’ lower edges and are worked back and forth with armhole shaping. The lower body is then worked in the round from the top down. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armholes, the cap is shaped with short rows, and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
