The completed sleeve facing. Working mattress stitch on the sleeve. indd 47 2/22/10 2:40 PM 48 Pa rt I I : Anatomy of a Sweater Working whipstitch on both the body and the sleeves. The finished seam. For Square Armholes The square armhole doesn’t have the cut edge at the bottom to worry about, since the entire width of the armhole was removed at one time while working the body. The sleeve cap fits neatly into the armhole without additional shaping; the sleeve is simply worked back and forth for the height of the sleeve cap after the required length to the underarm has been reached, and the facing was added above the sleeve cap.

When you knit straight to the shoulder, mark your neck opening, and then sew and cut it open, you’ve multiplied your options—choose a crewneck or V-neck, or anything in between, or leave the edge uncut for a boatneck. For sweaters with bound-off neck edges, you can work back and forth or add cutting stitches so that you can continue working in the round. The boatneck pullover is about as basic as you can get when it comes to necklines. No shaping is involved and elaborate color patterns can continue directly to the shoulder without interruption.

The sleeve fitting into this armhole doesn’t need to be as wide as that of a drop shoulder sweater; a shaped sleeve cap can be added so that the total length along the shaped edge equals the shaped edge of the armhole. After the sleeve has been sewn into the armhole, the facing stitches are picked up only along the cut edge of the armhole to work the facing. Square Armholes Somewhere between the drop shoulder and the shaped armhole is the square armhole. There’s a slight reduction in the bulk at the bottom of the armhole of a drop shoulder sweater, and it is simpler to work than the shaped armhole.
