Poulsbo by Josee Paquin is worked from the top down, flat to the underarm, then the body is knit in the round. The back is knit first with short rows to shape the shoulders. Stitches are picked up at the shoulders to knit each front to the lower edge of the neck opening. Stitches are picked up along the neck opening for the vertical plackets, then stitches are picked up to knit the collar. Right and left fronts are then joined to knit the front to the underarm. Front and back stitches are joined to knit the body in the round to the hem. Stitches are picked up to knit the sleeve trims in the round. Choose the size with 6–10” of positive ease.
