This dress/tunic is worked in the round from the bottom up as follows: the body is worked with shaping until the armholes where it is put on holders to await the sleeves. Sleeves are worked in the round from the cuff to the underarm. Sleeves and body are joined and worked in the round with raglan decreases. Short rows are used to shape the neck, then the cowl is worked. Please note cable pattern is charted only.

errata Please note the second decrease rnd in the Yoke section should ready “body only not “sleeves only”. My apologies!!
