Cloudesley is worked seamlessly from the top down using the contiguous set-in sleeve method (developed by Susie Myers) to shape the shoulders and sleeve caps. First increases are worked on both RS and WS rows to final shoulder width, while setting up the slip stitch pattern band for the back, then the sleeve caps are worked simultaneously with the V-Neck shaping to sleeve separation. Then the body is worked top down in rounds to the bottom, where a slip stitch pattern band is added to the front. Sleeves are worked top down in rounds. Neck finishing is worked last.
