Slanted is a slightly oversized with fitted sleeves. It is worked sideways with 2 different ribbing patterns and assembled in a quite unique way with contrasting seams.
First the collar is worked in one piece. After separating the stitches for right and left fronts, both fronts and backs are worked separately. The back is closed using the CC (contrasting color) and a 3 needle bind off. The rest is assembled by picking and knitting stitches and binding off. Finally the sleeves are worked top down.
