This pattern is knitted top down with stockinette stitch, using both sewing and picking up the stitches.
You start knitting the sweater by working the back . Then you work the shoulders starting with picking up the stitches on the back of the sweater. Each shoulder is worked separately while shaping the neckline. The front piece is worked to the same length as the back piece, then the two pieces are sewn together to leave room for the sleeves.
The sleeves start with picking up the stitches along the front and back of the sweater. By decreasing the stitches, the sleeves are narrowed downwards. Then the sleeves are sewn along the long edge.
The neckband is worked in rounds without sewing with a 2×2 rib stitch pattern.
