Sleeves and body are worked in the round from the bottom up. They are joined together to work the yoke and neckline in the round. Some knitters may find that they need a different needle size to achieve gauge in stranded colorwork.
A larger needle size (Size C) is recommended in this case, as most knitters find their stranded colorwork knitting tighter than plain Stockinette stitch. For best results, swatch in both stitch patterns to determine if a larger needle size is necessary.

Clearly reading patterns . Thanks
Great pattern - easy to follow, a quick knit. I’m using the yarn in the same shade as the photograph on the pattern and it looks lovely.
