Chuck is a cropped, seamless pull over with cable panels running down the front. The sweater starts at the back where each shoulder is cast on, joined at the back neck and then knit to the bottom of the armholes. After that, the back is put on hold. Stitches are picked up from each shoulder and knit. They’re joined together when the front neckline is cast on. The front is worked until the bottom of the underarms. The underarms are cast on, and the front and back are joined in the round to knit the body. When the body is finished, stitches are picked up around the armholes, and the sleeve caps are shaped with short rows.
