Notes: Rievaulx is knit flat, starting with the back from the top down. Sts are then picked up along the back shoulders for the front, which is also worked flat from the top down. Sleeve sts are picked up around the armhole, worked flat and shaped with short rows. Finally, the side seams are sewn using mattress stitch and sts are picked up around the neckline to knit the collar in the round.
The body of Rievaulx is worked with the instarsia method, using three colours per row. When working a row, always change yarn colour as established previously.
