Caseta is knit in the round from the bottom up. After dividing at the armholes, the front and back are worked flat separately, with sleeve stitches cast on, and worked up at the same time. The shoulders are seamed using a 3-Needle Bind Off, and stitches are picked up around neck to work the collar. Due to the design, this sweater is also completely reversible.
