This sweater is worked from side to side in rows, so the first piece that you work will form the Front and Back piece running along one side of the neckline, and will be folded at the shoulder. See the diagram overleaf for the direction of work, and where you need to join the yarn after each section. The Sleeves are worked separately, and the ruffles are added at the end.
Ch4 at the beginning of a row counts as a dtr. Ch1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a st.
