When working the front, the neck shaping is worked simultaneously with the short row shaping. We recommend you work the back piece first, as it will help in conceptualizing how the front is worked. 

The sweater is finished with a 3 needle bind off at the shoulders and mattress stitch to join the side seams. Stitches are then picked up to work the collar and sleeve cuffs in the round.
