Shoulder Bind Off:

Left side of board:
Lay yarn across the first 13 (17) stitches. Bind Off from beginning edge to neckline. Lay the last
loop onto the next needle #14 (18) on either board.
Right side of board. Bind Off from right edge for the first 13 (17) stitches. Lay the last loop
onto the next needle, either board.
Change to Open Rib Stitch by shifting the loops on one side of board for this stitch. If you prefer,
you may do the turtleneck in Rib Stitch.
Knit the turtleneck for a total of 16 rows.
Bind Off with crochet hook by pulling (1) loop thru (1). This will give you a looser, more
stretchy edge on the collar.
Bind Off at hemline at anchor yarn. Do this bind off by lifting 3 loops, alternating boards, and
pull (1) thru (2). Pick up the next (2) loops, and pull (1) thru (2). At end of knitting, pull yarn
tail thru the last loop for a knot. Carefully, remove the anchor yarn.

Finishing and Sewing
Lay the sweater front together with sweater back matching the turtleneck and shoulders.
Be sure to face the (2) sides of Open Rib together for the turtleneck.
Sew the shoulders thru the turtleneck with invisible stitch.
Sew each sleeve from underarm to cuff. With the sleeve laying flat, place the sleeve seam at
underarm. Note center of sleeve and match it to the shoulder seam.
Start sewing at the hemline of the sweater pieces. You may want to tack the sleeve in place
within the sweater. Sew side seam up to the sleeve, and then around the entire sleeve opening,
easing any fullness of the sweater to the sleeve. Since your sleeve has a finished seam, it
will not stretch as easily as the sweater pieces.
Once your sleeves are sewn into the sweater, your sweater is complete.
Roll the cuffs for final touch.
