The sweater is seamlessly worked in the Round, from the top-down. It’s knit flat until the neck is joined and in the Round from then on. It is started with a provisional cast-on, in MC, to the lower rib, where the CC stripes are worked in. The neck provisional cast on sts are then worked in CCs stripes, once the garment is finished.
The sleeves are worked top-down and are also finished in the color stripes before the ribbing.
