Final Frontier is a top-down, seamless, boxy pullover with garter stitch panels and an interesting construction.
We start the work with the shoulder saddles, they are worked sideways and joined at the center of the back neck. Then the stitches of the fronts and back are picked up along the edges of the saddles and the upper yoke is worked back and forth in rows.
Shoulders are shaped with some short rows and the deep yoke is shaped with unusually placed invisible increases.
After the front placket is complete we continue to work in the round to the underarms where the stitches of the body and the sleeves are separated and body is worked in one piece to the hem.
Sleeves are worked in the round from the underarm to the cuff.
Stitches for the neckband are picked up and knit in twisted rib.
