Evening Star is worked in pieces from the bottom up. Increases shape the dolman body, and stitches are cast on for the sleeves. After the sleeves are worked, short rows shape the shoulders.
After joining the shoulders with a 3-Needle Bind Off, stitches are picked up to work the cuffs. Stitches are then picked up to work the front band.
