pinia is worked seamlessly from the top down. Starting with the neck shaping, short rows are worked back and forth to create a higher back neck. The yoke is then worked in the round to sleeve separation. Sleeve stitches are placed on hold to work the body top down to the ribbing. The sleeves are then worked top down to the cuffs. Optional neck finishing is worked last.
