Pattern Notes

Sweater is worked by starting with shoulder saddles that are worked flat and are then joined. The back and fronts are worked flat from the shoulder saddles top down to the underarms and joined for the body to continue in joined and turned rounds to the hem.

Collar and cuffs are worked back and forth in rows, at a right angle to the body or sleeve.  The ribbing is attached at the end of every other row by working the last stitch of the ribbing and the next stitch of the body or sleeve together. Be sure to skip a stitch in between each join by slip stitching in the next stitch to turn.
