It is knit from the bottom up and there are NO side seams; in fact, the only seams needed are on the underarm of the sleeves. It has a round yoke which is edged with a scalloped knitted frill, and has a ribbed band at the hem. The sweater closes in front with buttons and includes instructions on making special Bullion Rose embroidered buttons. The pattern includes written instructions as well as charts.
