Construction Notes
Ode is worked in the round from the bottom up. Dolman sleeves are shaped at the same time as body. At undearms, front and back are separated and worked separately. Back shoulders are shaped with short rows and joined to front shoulders with three needle bind off. Neck and armhole edging are picked up and worked in finishing.
