Sweater begins in the front center. Increases are used to create a triangle. The triangle base is half of the lower body width. Stitches are cast-on for the back and short-rows are worked to drop the hem. The body is continued in the round with increases and decreases worked to continue the fabric on the bias and is then split to work back and forth at the neck. After the body length has been reached, the sweater is split at the underarm to work the back and fronts. After the shoulders are seamed, the sleeves are picked up and knit out from the body. The sweater is finished with ribbing at neck and hem.
