The sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up. The design has a V-neck and set-in sleeves. Stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes and the sleeves are worked down from there and finished with tight cuffs. The stitches for the rib at the hem are cast on using the Italian cast-on technique and stitches are bound off at neck and cuffs using the Italian bind-off technique.
