Gauge
20 sts and 28 rounds = 4 inches in St st in the round on larger needles, blocked
Note: make sure you swatch your color work as it is not uncommon for gauge to be different compared to stockinette. Change needle sizes during those sections if needed.

Finley Sweater is worked seamlessly from the bottom up in the round. First the body is worked straight to the underarms. Next, two sleeves are made, then attached to the body. Short rows are worked to start shaping the back of the yoke.
Once the yoke shaping is complete, the last few short rows are worked to raise the back of the neck.
The sample shown is a size 36 and has 4 inches of positive ease. When choosing sizes, I recommend 2-4 inches of ease.
