Aldous is worked seamlessly in rounds from the top down.First some short rows are worked back and forth to shape the neck. The yoke is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the underarm stitches are cast on using your preferred method. From this point the body is worked in rounds to the hem, where a single-color Twisted Braid highlights the start of the ribbing. The sleeve stitches are picked up again to work them in rounds top down, using the same Twisted Braid to highlight the cuffs. No finishing required.
