Pattern Description:

This sweater is worked top down in one piece, starting with the collar. When the increases for the top and sleeve caps are done, the sleeve stitches are knitted off onto spare needles and set aside for working later. The only seams are the small holes where the sleeves are worked in the round after the body is done. Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up.

Button bands are worked as you go, and the twisted stitches are simple yet make a striking texture.
