- This sweater is worked flat in one piece from the top down. Stitches for the sleeves are placed on hold at the end of the yoke, then the body is continued to the hem edge. The sleeves are worked circularly from the top down. Stitches are picked up for the collar around the front and back neck edges. Work continues over some of the collar stitches at each side of the bottom edge of the collar to form the pockets, which are folded back and sewn in place.
