Arwen is a round-yoked sweater that is worked seamlessly from the top down. After finishing the neck ribbing some short-rows are worked back and forth to create a higher back neck and then the round-yoke is worked top down with a cute ‘bobbly’ lace pattern band to sleeve separation. Sleeve stitches are placed on hold to work the body top down to the long 2x2 Rib with a light A-line shaping. Sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work the sleeves top down in rounds to the 2x2 Rib cuffs.
