Sweater is worked in one piece from bottom border to
underarm. Fronts are separated from back, and the right
front, left front, and back are worked separately to the
shoulder. Shoulders are shaped using short rows, and the
fronts are joined to the back at the shoulder using a three-needle bind off. Stitches for the sleeve cap are picked
up around the armhole edge, the cap is shaped with short
rows, then the sleeve is worked in the round to the wrist.
The collar is picked up inside the rolled border and worked
