If you do not wish to swatch for this project, you can begin with the sleeves and check your gauge after a few centimeters.
Approximately one skein of fingering weight or sock yarn for the main color and a small amount of the same weight yarn for the hearts in a contrasting color.
The sleeves are worked first, in the round from the cuff up. The body is worked flat from the bottom up. The sleeves are joined to the body and everything is worked flat including the colorwork yoke detail.
