The shoulder pieces are joined to create the front of the sweater. When the correct length of the front- and back parts are reached, they are joined to form the body of the sweater, which is worked in the round.
When the body is completed, stitches are picked up at the armholes to create the sleeves, which are worked in moss stitch and has decreases throughout.
Finally, stitches are picked up at the neckline and worked in twisted rib.
