Dexter is a cute, textured cardigan worked seamlessly from the top down. The upper part of the raglan yoke of the fronts and the back is worked in Broken Seed Stitch, while the sleeves are worked in Stockinette stitch. Additional increases are worked after the Broken Seed Stitch part of the yoke to get a relaxed fit. When the yoke shaping is complete, sleeve stitches are placed on hold to work the body first down to the ribbing. A small Broken Seed Stitch band before the ribbing is added for a little interest ;) Then stitches are picked up for the button band and the buttonhole band. Neck-finishing is worked next. Last the sleeve stitches are placed back on the needles to work the sleeves seamlessly in the round down to the cuffs
