Body is knit flat to the underarms, where fronts and backs are divided. Increases are made at the armhole edge to “tilt” the shoulder slightly for a more flattering fit. Short rows are worked across the shoulders on front and back before bind off. Stitches from the fronts are placed on holders and then worked to become the collar of the sweater. Live sts of collar are grafted together for the back neck. Shoulders are seamed and the collar seamed to the back neck of the sweater. Stitches are picked up for the buttonband across the front, over the neck and across the other front. Sleeves are worked flat and seamed.

Note that some testers found it helpful to use a stretchy bind off for the sleeves. Sleeve length on this sweater is a bit generous for some bodies, and is effected by how much ease you choose. Some testers found they could fold the cuff up while others found it fine. To get an accurate sleeve measurement for your own body and preference, you might seam and block your body before knitting your sleeves. If you do this, measure from the edge of the armhole opening to where you would like your sleeve to hit and make adjustments to the sleeve measurement accordingly.
