Note that this is a design that is worked on circular needles in the round from the bottom of the lower band up to the armholes which is then split to work the upper parts of front and back backwards and forwards flat. Finally the v neckband and armhole bands are picked up and knit - again in the round. Be sure to check you have circular and/or Double Pointed needles (DPNs) at hand.
