The Sunday Sweater is knit from the top down. The yoke is knit in the round with shaped with rib stitches and increases. Body and sleeves are knit in stockinette stitch and finished with a ribbed cuff. The sleeves on the Sunday Sweater are extra-long and widen before the cuff. The neckband is folded over and sewn to the inner side of the sweater.
