The Sweater in knit sideways, starting at the sleeve in one piece. The sleeves are knit in the round up to the armhole, and then new stitches will be cast on for the front and back. The body is worked flat up to the neckline, where the front and back are divided, working each one separately with two skeins at the same time, then the front neckline is shaped and once this is finished we join the work until we get to the second sleeve, which is again worked in the round. The lower ribbing is worked once the garment is finished and sewn together. The neck will be topped off with a low crochet border (optional).
