Mods: I did not bind off the back; instead I three-needled the fronts to the back at the shoulders, leaving the back neck stitches on a holder. While I may soon be wielding a crochet hook, I did not crochet any edges (as written) on this sweater. After knitting the button bands, I picked up/knit a row at the neck edge, knit another row, and then bound off. I also picked up and knit the sleeves from the top down, eliminating another seam, figuring my decreases rather than increases, of course, and ending by knitting two rows in blue then binding off. In the end, then, the only seams were the sleeve and side seams.

This was a fun sweater to knit!
