Sorry I didn't mention what pattern I was using or that yes it indeed is in separate pieces. I was planning on blocking them separately before putting them together so it will be easier to seam.
The sweaters I've done before were both blends that didn't need blocking as well as top down.
The pattern I'm using is Madison by Dolce. The bodice is a TWL alternating rib with the cap of the sleeves also in the rib pattern. Took me awhile to figure out the wording on the shaping of the back as it's worded differently than others I've worked with before. But I'm finally almost finished!!!
