Construction:
Stitches are cast on for the yoke and worked flat until the neckline shaping is complete. The piece is then joined to work in the round and shaped with raglan increases. Stitches are set aside for the sleeves and the body is worked down in one piece. The sleeve stitches are placed onto dpns and knit down in the round. Finally stitches are picked up to work the neck band.
