Construction: Sweater is worked flat from bottom to underarms, with fringe knit in. Following provisional cast-on’s at underarms, the sleeve caps are worked continuously with the upper sweater until the sleeve caps are bound off and the upper sweater portions - back and two fronts - are worked separately to the short-row-shaped shoulders. Shoulders are finished with a 3-needle bindoff, and the collar is worked all together as a continuation of the center back and fronts. Sleeves are worked in the round from the provisional cast on at underarms downward to the wrists.
