Hylda is worked as a top-down raglan, with a mesh and rib hourglass panel in the back. The raglan shaping for the back is incorporated into the mesh for the first part of the hourglass, and into the ribbing for the second part. After the raglan shaping is complete, the ribbing continues to increase, and stitches on the front are decreased to compensate. The hem is finished with 1x1 ribbing, and the sleeves are worked in stockinette to the 1x1 ribbing cuff. A neckband is then picked up and worked up from the original cast on. Unless otherwise specified, slip all markers as you come to them.
