The full name of this sweater is Once Again Mrs. Claus Saves Christmas.

This sweater is worked bottom up, and has lots of feinsmecker details.

The cast on method is Chinese waitress, but it is possible to use the cast on method you like.

The heart pattern on the sleeves calls for small travelling cables.

Both the sleeves and the body are worked in the round.

The sleeves and body are joined together seamlessly, except for the kitchener stitch seam under the sleeves. The joining itself is worked similar to raglan, but with more shaping for the shoulders. It is worked like the contiguous method but upside down - or more correctly, downside up.

Short rows are used to shape the front neck line and upper back, so that the fit along the neck should be perfect.
