The shoulders are worked in one piece and then divided for front and back. The upper front and back are each worked flat and then joined in the round at the underarm. The body is worked in the round, and is easy to customise to your desired length. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked top down in the round. They're completed with ribbed cuffs which can be turned up at first. The drop shoulder construction is comfy to wear and means that there is no sleeve cap shaping to worry about. The sweater is completed with a ribbed neckband worked by picking up stitches around the neckline.
