Notes: Izumi is knit in the round from the bottom upwards, with a stocking stitch body before splitting to work flat in rows for the upper front and back which incorporate a lace and cable detail. The shoulders are grafted together before picking up the sleeves which are then worked down to the cuffs, with the collar picked up and worked in the round to finish.
