Tools
Stitch markers (4), tapestry needle, stitch holder or waste yarn

Note
The sweater is knitted flat in pieces.
The back is worked first and then the front and sleeves are worked.
Stitches are cast on using the Tubular Cast On method which uses a waste yarn for CO. (see Stitch guide). I suggest using US 3 (3.25 mm) for CO and the first 5 rows and US 4 (3.5 mm) for normal ribbing.
From the armhole the front and the back are different (see Schematics). The armhole on the front is longer than the one on the back. The back is shorter because shoulders are shaped so that the seam will show on the back.
The sweater, at the end of the realization of all the parts, must be seamed. I recommend starting by seaming the two shoulders first, then setting in the sleeves seam them, and eventually seam the sides of the body and of the sleeves.
Use Mattress Stitch to seam the sweater keeping the RS of the work facing you.

Note
パーツごとに往復編みで編むが, まず後ろ身頃を編み, それから前身頃, 袖を編む.
作り目は別糸を使い, Tubular Cast On (1目ゴム編みの作り目) の方法で行う. (ステッチガイドを参照). 作り目と最初の5段にはUS 3 (3.25 mm) の針を, 通常のゴム編みにはUS 4 (3.5 mm) の針を使用することを推奨する.
前後身頃の袖ぐりはそれぞれ異なる (スキーム図を参照). 肩の綴じ目が後ろ身頃に来るようシェイピングをしているため, 前身頃の袖ぐりは後ろ身頃の袖ぐりよりも長くなっている.
すべてのパーツを仕上げた後に綴じるが, RSを見てすくいとじの方法を用い, 最初に両肩を綴じ, それから袖を付け, 最後に身頃の両脇と袖下, それぞれを綴じる.
