From pattern notes:
“This pattern was inspired by the wonderful colors of Noro sitting next to stark black. I got the yarn the day my daughter started at a week long summer camp, and now we both have a fun memory of that time.
The sleeves are knitted top-down and the body is knitted bottom up.
All pieces have seam sts included in the initial CO numbers. These sts are the first and last st of every piece and are to be worked in stockinette.
All raglan incs or decs are worked one st in from the edge, not counting seam sts.
The decs on the body are worked 6 sts in from the edge, while the body incs are worked one st in from the edge, not counting seam sts.”
