Gianluca is worked seamlessly in rounds from the top down. First some short rows are worked to shape the neck. Raglan increases are then worked to final yoke depth, where sleeve stitches are placed on hold. From this point the body is worked in rounds to the colorwork and ribbing. Then sleeve stitches are picked up again to work the sleeves in rounds top down to the cuff. No finishing required.
