This sweater is knit in one piece. Start at the hem and knit - with significant waist shaping - up to the underarms, then divide the fronts from the back. The collar flaps (small extensions from the neck edge of the fronts) are joined with a 3 needle bind off, as are the front & back shoulders. Stitches are picked up along the bottom edge of the collar, and joined with a 3 needle bind off to the back neck stitches. The sleeves are knit in the round right into the garment using Wendy Bernard’s method of short rowing the sleeve caps.
