Notes

Body is knit in the round to the underarm where the back and front are divided and worked separately to the shoulder. Shoulders are joined with Three-needle BO, then the sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole openings. The sleeve caps are shaped with short-rows, then the sleeve is worked in the round down to the cuff.
