But the majestic river floated on, / Out of the mist and hum of that low land, / Into the frosty starlight, and there moved, / Rejoicing, through the hushed Chorasmian waste, / Under the solitary moon.
Matthew Arnold, 1822 – 1888

This design by Sarah Hatton is showing a yoke band, which is knitted sideways. The stitches for the yoke are picked up afterwards. The sleeves are knitted in the round and the body is knitted in one piece from top down, picking up stitches from the cast-on edge of the sleeves. It is knitted in Rowan Felted Tweed and shown here in shade Granite 194.
I love this design for its clever construction. Knitting this garment top-down will allow you to adjust the length of sleeves and the body to your exact measurements or according to your taste.
