PetiteKnit - September Sweater
The September Sweater is worked from the top down in brioche stitch. First the back is worked back and forth while stitches are cast on for the neck and increases are worked at either side of the work. Then stitches are picked up for the shoulders, which are worked separately and then joined for the front. Once the front and back of the yoke have been finished, they are joined at the underarm for the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle. After this, stitches are picked up and knitted around the armholes and the sleeves are worked in the round on a short circular needle. At the end, stitches are picked up and knitted along the neck edge, and a rib edge is worked. This rib is folded over and sewn down on the inside of the sweater. This makes the September Sweater completely free of finishing, apart from the sewing down of the folded neck edge.
