Notes
-- The sleeves are worked in the round to the underarms, then placed on hold while the body is worked flat in one piece to the underarms. The pieces are joined, and the yoke is worked in one piece to the end, with raglan shaping. Patch pockets are knit and sewn on, and the front bands and neckband are worked.
-- Underarm stitches are grafted together using Kitchener stitch; if you prefer, you may use 3-Needle BO.
