My book describes it exactly opposite-casting on to increase the armhole (and then knitting the sleeve) first, then when going back to work the body, picking up the added armhole stitches into the body round...
You can do it either way. Some knitters would rather knit the sleeves first and have them flop around while knitting the body, some would rather knit the body first so it flops around while you're doing the sleeves.
