Niamh (pronunciation: Neev or Ni-uv) is worked seamlessly from the top down using the contiguous set-in sleeve method (developed by Susie Myers) to shape the shoulders and sleeve caps. First increases are worked on both RS and WS rows to final shoulder width, then the sleeve caps are worked simultaneously with the V-Neck shaping to sleeve separation. Then the body is worked top down in rounds to the beautiful ribbing. Sleeves are worked top down to the cuffs last. No additional finishing required.
