The Amio Sweater is cast on around the neckline and the raglan shaping is worked down to the separation of the sleeves. The body continues with the colour-work to a folded hem, which is seamed down. The sleeves are placed on the needles and worked down with decreases to a rib cuff. Finally, the neckband is picked up and either a crew neck band or a turtleneck collar is worked with increasing sizes of needles, before having a few rounds worked in the contrast colour and then bound off.
