Fun constructions make for fun knits!
Across is – as it’s name suggests – worked across from cuff to cuff. First stitches are cast on for the right cuff, then the sleeve is worked to the body, increasing along the way to shape the sleeve. Additional stitches are added for the body, which then is worked flat until the neck opening. The stitches are then divided into the front and the back, each worked separately, before the two portions are joined again and the process is reversed all the way to reaching the left cuff.
