Kraynebo sweater is worked from the bottom up in two pieces (front and back) and seamed at the shoulders and sides. The shoulders are worked in short rows and joined as-you-go.

Extra rows are added to the back neckline to create a higher back neck. The bateau neckline is formed naturally and no extra shaping is required.

The sleeve sts are picked up using the border sts around the arm openings and worked in the round top down to the desired length. Decreases are evenly placed along each sleeve creating a gentle taper towards the cuff.

Kraynebo is one of twelve Ukrainian words for horizon.
