Baxter Peak is worked in the round from the bottom up. Colorwork adorns the bottom of the sleeves and sweater body. Work either the 16” (40 cm) or 24” (60) circular for the body. When working the yoke, you may want to change to an even longer circular if the stitches do not fit comfortably on your needles.
After the sleeves and body are complete, the pieces are joined to work the yoke. Raglan decreases shape the yoke, then short rows are worked to raise the back neck. A colorwork pattern with integrated decreases is worked, and then a ribbed crewneck with a tubular bind off completes the sweater. Due to the bottom up construction, the neck is finished with a tubular bind off. You may elect to work the sleeve cuffs and hem as tubular cast ons if you prefer.
