...against all odds (Max)
file contents also german, french and italian versions!
...against all odds (Max) is worked seamlessly from the top down. First the neck is shaped by working short rows back and forth and then the yoke is joined to work in the round. The yoke is worked using a modified version of the contiguous set-in-sleeves method developed by Susie Myers (SusieM on ravelry). When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve sts are placed on hold and the underarm sts are cast on, using your preferred cast on method. The body is worked in the round to the ribbing. Then sleeve sts are picked up again to work the sleeves top down in the round to the end. As this jumper is worked from the top down it is advisable to try it on from time to time to check the length and overall fit. The length and width of the yoke are easily adjustable by adding/ reducing increases, or adding/ reducing underarm sts.
