Notes: Willowwood is knit bottom up in the round, then the front and back are separated at the underarm before working neck and shoulder shaping. Shoulders are finished with a 3-needle cast off. Stitches are picked up around the armhole for the sleeves and at the neckband for the collar. The sleeves are dropped, so measure arm
circumference approximately 10 cm / 4” from the underarm to ensure the sleeve opening will fit comfortably.
