Front and back are divided at armholes and shaped separately then joined at the shoulders using a centred double decrease. Stitches are picked up around the neck which is then finished with a ribbed cowl neck using increasingly larger needles. Finally, the stockinette sleeves with ribbed cuffs are worked in the round.
