Body is knit flat to the underarms, where fronts and backs are divided. Increases are made at the armhole edge to “tilt” the shoulder slightly for a more flattering fit. Short rows are worked across the shoulders on front and back before bind off. Stitches from the fronts are placed on holders and then worked to become the collar of the sweater. Live sts of collar are grafted together for the back neck. Shoulders are seamed and the collar seamed to the back neck of the sweater. Stitches are picked up for the buttonband across the front, over the neck and across the other front. Sleeves are worked flat and seamed.
