When you’re knitting a bottom up sweater and reach the directions for ‘joining the body and sleeves’ do you find it difficult to visualise how the pieces fit together? If you lay the two sleeves and body out like the photo above you may find it easier to picture where the knitting is going next. Each round of the yoke will be worked across the back of the body, around one sleeve, across the front and around the second sleeve. The stitches that are lying against each other at the underarms are put ‘on hold’. They’ll eventually be seamed or bound off together. Since you aren’t Flat Stanley this spans your underarm from front to back in a comfortable, anatomically correct way.  The photos above and below show the underarm stitches and are going to be ignored until the finishing steps of the sweater

Brigitta is a super-bulky, cropped and flared jacket that knits up in a weekend. Worked bottom-up you knit the body and each sleeve up to the underarm
