The sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. Start working the collar separately. Then you pick up as well as CO stitches for the back and shape the back neck with short rows. Continue to work the back for the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and collar and work both fronts symmetrically for the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body in stitch pattern down to the bottom ribbing. Work the bottom ribbing with front short rows. Pick up the sleeve stitches to work the sleeves in rounds in stitch pattern.
