Gretel is knit in the round from the bottom up. A slipped stitch on each side gives the sweater structure. The cuff of the bracelet-length sleeve is worked flat and then joined to work the sleeve in the round. Sleeves are worked from the bottom up and then joined to the body to create the yoke. The yoke is knit flat. The button plackets are knit separately and then attached to the sweater. Gretel is designed to fit close to the body with zero ease. If you would like a looser sweater, go up one size.
