Collar is picked up form bound-off neckline stitches, worked circularly, then folded and sewn to the inside of the garment.

One strand each of Yarn A and Yarn B are held together throughout, except when noted.

A 1-stitch slipped selvedge is worked at each side edge of upper body and sleeve caps, as instructed within {brackets}.

For best results, use the Sloped Bind Off Method (see Special Techniques) for shoulder and neckline shaping.
