Construction is a variation of the top-down, seamless, simultaneous set-in sleeve method described by Barbara Walker in Knitting From the Top.
Fingering (held double) and Light Worsted/Heavy DK weight yarns are recommended for Stonehaven. The grey sweater shown was knit with doubled fingering weight which turns out to be somewhere in the DK/worsted range.
