SHOULDER SEAMS:
1. Sew fronts to back along shoulder seams.

SHIRT COLLAR:
— Worked in 2 pieces.
— The Shirt Collar instructions below are for a small standup section which will hug the neck, then the collar will fold over and spread flat against the top of the sweater. If you would like a fuller collar, increase the number of sts 10-20% when you change to the looser gauge. For a flatter collar, increase the number of sts immediately after pick-up.
— Work shirt collar in stitch pattern of choice; it should be reversible and also loose enough to lay flat on the shoulders. Some suggestions are: 1×1 ribbing or tuck stitch.
— The instructions below are for working the collar in two pieces with a center back seam. Another option is to work the collar separately (by casting on 118 sts and following step 2 below) then sew the collar into the neckline.
1. Bring out 59 needles to HP. With wrong side of work facing, rehang 11 sts from front neck holder, 22 sts from right front neck edge, 5 sts from right back neck edge and 21 sts from back neck holder to center. Hang weights. Push needles to FWP, latches open. Use TD3 with COR.
2. Work 40 rows in pattern stitch of choice. Work first 8 rows using TD3 then switch to TD6 or larger to work remainder of collar at a looser gauge. Cast off very loosely.
3. Work the left side the same way as the right, picking up the back neck sts first.

BUTTON BAND:
1. Start with left front for girls/women, right front for boys/men. Using TD3 bring out 47 needles to HP. With wrong side of work facing, hang sts (approximately 4 sts for each 5 rows along keyhole edge) between bottom of keyhole and top of collar band.
2. Work in 1×1 ribbing for 13 rows. Cast off loosely.
3. Mark positions for 3 buttons, the first one 0.5 ins above the band bottom, the last one 0.5 ins below the band top. The rest should be evenly spaced between these two, approximately 2.0 ins apart.

BUTTONHOLE BAND:
1. Work buttonhole band as for button band, working buttonholes at the marked positions. Check your machine knitting reference book for techniques.
2. Sew buttons at marked positions on the button band, being careful to align buttons with buttonholes.

FINISHING:
1. Sew sleeve top to armhole, easing to fit. Sew side and sleeve seams. Sew any remaining seams.
2. Overlap and sew bottom of button bands to bottom of keyhole.
3. Darn/weave/sew in all loose ends.
