The work begins with the ribbed turtleneck. The neckline is then shaped with short rows. When the raglan increases are completed, sleeve stitches are placed on hold. The body is then worked in the round to the beginning of pocket openings. Front and back are then worked separately to the given length and then joined for working in the round again. Stitches for each pocket are picked up around the pocket openings and the pockets are worked in the round. Sleeve stitches are then placed back on the needles and the sleeves are worked in the round towards the cuffs.
The pattern includes a photo tutorial for german short rows.

Two yarns are held together throughout, except for the pockets that are worked with a single strand. If substituting, choose yarns that give you the correct gauge. For example fingering weight + light fingering or fingering weight + laceweight mohair. Also note that when working the body back and forth for the pocket openings, the yarns blend differently compared to working in the round. You might want to use yarns that don’t have too much contrast when choosing the colors.
