The piece is worked seamlessly from the top down. The back of the boatneck is worked back and forth using German short-rows, and then the yoke is worked in the round with raglan shaping until the yoke is complete. The Sleeves and Body are divided and the Sleeves are placed on hold while the Body is worked to the bottom edge. The Sleeves are worked to the cuff. The Sleeves and Body are worked in Stockinette stitch, with a colorwork chevron band at the bottom edge.
