Seve is worked seamlessly from the top down. Both the front and the back are worked in Stockinette stitch with a slip stitch pattern in the center. There is no difference in shaping with this sweater which means that you can wear the wide pattern panel either way. Knitting starts with the cast on of the upper back (shoulders and neck). Once the short row shaped shoulder slope is done, the back is worked flat to underarm. To work the front to the same length, the shoulder stitches are picked up from the cast on edge of the back and the front neck is cast on. At underarm both front and back are joined to work the body top down in rounds to the bottom hem (optional split hem instructions are given). For the long sleeve version, stitches are then picked up around the arm openings to work them top down in rounds. No finishing required.
