Sweater is knit seamlessly from the bottom up. Body and sleeves are worked separately and then joined at the underarms. Raglan-style decreases are worked in the round and then as circular style decreases. Short rows are worked before the colorwork for better fit around the neck. Colorwork charts are alternated with decrease rounds.
