Are you referring to the sweater that used to be on the Craft Yarn Council site? I just went there to double-check and couldn't find the pattern but my recollection is that this is a sweater knit from the bottom of the back up and over the shoulders and down to the bottom of the front. When you get to the part for the sleeves, you will be casting on additional stitches, continue working to the shoulder/neck shaping, go over the shoulder and then when you are finishing up the sleeve, you will be decreasing or binding off stitches until you get to the original count for the body.

If you are asking about a different pattern, can you provide some more information on where you found it?
