This sweater is knit top-down, with the top panels knit flat then connected to work in the round. It is mostly seed stitch with a big puffy folded collar and cuffs. The body shaping is easily customized and the seed stitch is very stretchy, so you can really get the perfect fit!

There is a video to demonstrate how to start the sleeves with lots of tips that are helpful for the front and back panels. There are also links to a couple of other videos and blogs for casting off the cuffs, Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off, and the crocheted provisional cast on. I designed this sweater to be accessible to all - with the added videos this would be a great first or second sweater for a more adventurous beginner!
