Jaiden is a cozy sweater worked seamlessly from the top down.
The yoke of this sweater is worked in Double Seed Stitch (first worked back and forth, then worked in the round). Knitting starts with the cast on of the back neck and sleeve cap stitches. The yoke is first worked back and forth until neck shaping is complete. From that point the yoke is worked in the round to the underarms, where sleeve sts are placed on hold to work the body first top down to the bottom. Sleeve sts are then placed back on the needles to work them top down in the round, with faux elbow patches. Neck finishing is worked last.
