Cilla is knit in one piece from side to side, with a round yoke shaped entirely with short rows. The pattern employs the most convenient and common type of short row, in Stockinette stitch and always worked on the right side.
Knit in one piece, the only seam is at the sleeve and underarm.
This pattern is appropriate for the knitter who has followed patterns before, and wants to experiment with an uncommon construction. It would be helpful to have knowledge of traditional sweater construction before using this pattern.

The use of a DK weight yarn held doubled is integral to the design. Substituting a bulky yarn that achieves gauge will result in a much thicker and heavier sweater. Take care when choosing an appropriate substitute.
