Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 8 stitch markers (including one unique for beginning of round), scrap yarn or stitch holders, tapestry needle

Notes: Merywen is worked top down in the round with raglan increases and optional short rows at the neck. At the underarm, sleeve stitches are put on hold and the body is worked in one piece. This pattern provides instructions for both a straight hem or a split hem. The sleeve stitches are picked up and sleeves are worked down in the round. Finally, stitches are picked up around the neckline and either a short neckband, a high neckband or a folded neckband is completed.
Note: The shorter neckband sits better when the optional short rows have been worked during the yoke shaping. The yoke, body and sleeves are worked in 1x1 Garter Rib, and the cuffs, hem and neckband are all worked in 1x1 Rib.
