Granton is worked in pieces from the bottom up, with tidy cabled decreases along the back shoulders. The bound off edge of the front wraps over the top of the shoulder to meet up with the back, for a tailored fit that looks great.

Since the shoulder seam sits towards the back, the center of the sleeve isn't right over the seam. Short rows are used to shape the shallow sleeve cap - here's our tutorial on working wrapless short rows.
