Corstorphine is worked from the bottom up in the round and steeked (cut open). The sleeves and body are worked separately and joined together for the yoke. There is gentle waist shaping for a casual but flattering fit in the adult version and short rows are worked in both versions above and below the colourwork on the yoke to comfortably lower the front neckline. The buttonbands are knit on after cutting the steeks.
