This sweater is worked seamlessly from the bottom up. The sleeves and body are worked separately, then are joined at the underarm and the raglan yoke is shaped to the neckline. Underarm stitches are joined with a three-needle bind-off, then stitches are picked up for the front buttonband. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
