Sawyer is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up. The lace pattern is provided in both charted and written form. After completing the front and back, stitches are joined at the shoulder using a 3 Needle Bind Off. Stitches are then picked up to work a deep ribbed turtleneck.
After completing the shoulder and neck, stitches are picked up at the armholes and sleeves are worked flat in Stockinette stitch to the ribbed cuffs. Two options for sleeves are given in the pattern pay attention to the schematic and choose the sleeve circumference that best suits your desired finished result. Once completed, the body and sleeves are seamed. Body length can be added easily by adding repeats of the lace pattern.
The gauge is given in the lace pattern after blocking. Be sure to knit a blocked gauge swatch prior to beginning.
