B(l)ack to life by Isabell Kraemer Yarn Kit

              

B(l)ack to Life is worked seamlessly from the top down. The yoke is shaped by using the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. First the yoke is worked back and forth to the final neck CO. When the neck shaping is complete, the yoke is worked in rounds to sleeve separation. Sleeve stitches are then placed on hold and the underarm stitches are cast on using your preferred method. Then the body is worked in rounds, top down, to the ribbing. Sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work the sleeve in rounds, top down, to the cuffs. Neck finishing is worked next. A cute and easy flower embroidery is added last.
