don’t ask is worked seamlessly from the top down. The yoke is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the underarm stitches are cast on using your preferred method. Then the body is worked in back and forth to the ribbing (instructions for optional pockets are provided). Button bands and neck finishing are worked next. Then the sleeve stitches are picked up again to work them in rounds top down to the cuffs.
