Saknes is worked seamlessly from the top down. Back stitches are cast on, the shoulders are shaped using short rows and then worked straight down to the underarm. Stitches for each front shoulder are picked up along the back shoulders and worked separately with increases shaping the front neckline down to the underarm. Back and front are then joined together and continued straight in one piece down to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armholes and worked in the round down to the cuffs. Instructions are for Japanese short rows, but any short row method can be substituted.
