From Knitting for Baby:  Sweaters knitted in the round with patterned yokes are a Scandinavian tradition.  Although our yarn choice is nontraditional--kettle-dyed, handspun yarn from Uruguay--our construction method is standard.  The body is worked in the round on circular needles, and the sleeves are worked in the round on four double-pointed needles.  Then the body and sleeves are joined at the yoke on a circular needle, and the sweater is finished in one piece.
