Baldric is worked seamlessly in rounds from the top down. First some short-rows are worked back and forth to shape the neck. Raglan increases are then worked to final yoke length, where sleeve stitches are placed on hold. From this point the body is worked in rounds with garter details at both sides to final length. Sleeve stitches are picked up again to work the sleeves in rounds top down with garter details. No finishing required.
