Then the front shoulders are picked up from the back and worked separately until neck shaping is complete. The fronts are then joined and worked through the armholes. Front and back are then joined and worked in the round. Sleeves are picked up, shaped with short rows and worked in the round until the thumb holes where they are briefly worked flat and then again in the round. Finally, the neck ribbing is picked up and worked.
