Notes: The front and back of the garment are knit flat
in pieces and seamed at the shoulders and sides using
mattress stitch. The reverse stocking stitch sleeves are
worked in the round from stitches picked up around the
armhole edge, and the sleeve caps are shaped using short
rows. Each sleeve cuff is then worked to twice its finished
length before being folded over to form a faced hem.
The live sleeve stitches are sewn to the outside of the
sleeve, then the faced cuff is turned up and tacked in
place. The narrow stockinette stitch neckband is picked
up and worked to twice its finished length before being
turned under to the WS of the garment, then fastened
and finished in one step using a simple crochet chain
worked from the RS.
