Korshavn Sweater is worked bottom up in basket weave according the chart. First the ribbed hem and body are worked in the round, before you cast off stitches for the armhole openings and continue to work front and back separately. You cast off stitches for the neckline both at front and back and knit the shoulders together. You then pick up stitches around the armhole openings for the sleeves, which are worked in the round following the chart. Finally, you pick up stitches around the neckline and the ribbed hem is folded to the sweater’s wrong side.
Please check the stated measurements and size guide for your correct size. Get familiar with the chart before you start knitting. Remember to knit a gauge swatch first. Take measurements of your gauge swatch after washing and blocking. Adjust the needle size, if necessary.
