The top is worked top-down in rib stitch. First, the shoulders are worked individually with increases toward the neck. The 2 shoulder panels are joined to form a front panel by casting on stitches at the front. The front panel is worked back and forth with cables and increasing for armholes. The back shoulders are worked individually with increases toward the neck. The 2 back shoulder panels are joined to form the back panel by casting on stitches at the back of the neck. The back panel is then worked back and forth in rib stitch with increases for armholes. The front and back panels are then joined, and the body is worked in the round in rib stitch and front cable pattern.
Stitches are picked up from the neck opening and worked in rib stitch; the neck hem is folded double and knitted down. Finally, stitches are picked up from the armhole and closed with an I-cord edge.
