Nellie is worked in one piece from the bottom up. After the legs are joined and the body is established, stitches are bound off for the front and you will finish working back and forth. Sleeves are worked in the round and then joined for the raglan yoke. Once the yoke is complete, stitches are then picked up to work the buttonbands.
