See a short video of Kristen wearing this sweater with 3” of negative ease (0-2” positive ease recommended).

And another video explaining the construction of the sweater.

This pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down. The shoulder tab is worked first, then the back and front shoulders are picked up from the sides of the tab. When both left and right shoulder sections are completed, the yoke is worked from the top down, with increases for the sleeve cap, body “armhole,” and neck shaping. At the underarms, the body and sleeves are divided and worked separately from the top down. The body includes some shaping for the waist, and the sleeves have some decreases. Stitches are then picked up around the neckline for the neckband.
