That last post made things in my head a little clearer. It will definitely come in handy when I get to the arms! Thank you so much. I will come back in several days and see if I have anymore questions, but I think that last link just might do the trick for this sweater!! Thank you!!!! HUGS!

Yes that's right. You're going to have 3 tubes oOo and the underarms are the points where you will bind off some sts on both sides of the body and the sleeves, or put them on holders. These will be joined later. Then to join the pieces you knit across one sleeve, the front, the other sleeve and the back all onto one needle. It's a good idea to do a dec at the points you join the pieces - one st from the sleeve, one from the front or back - and it helps prevent gaps.

You could use that link that gottaknit posted to work the decreases on the yoke, it seems to be a good guide. If you have a different number of sts, just figure out the percentage you have and multiply that times the number of sts to dec.

Looking at the picture of your sweater again, it doesn't look like it has decreases for yoke shaping. Do you think this sweater is put together like this?

Or this?

I've done an after-thought heel, but it didn't involve cutting. I'm not that brave!

Oh there's decreases in there, you just can't see them. A yoked sweater has decreases every couple inches all the way around, not just at the 4 'seams' like a raglan does.

I know a yoked sweater doesn't have to be a raglan, can have regular spaced decreases instead.
There's just something about the photo, guess it's a funny shadow. Made me wonder.

It's not steeked though. That's when you knit a tube, then split it to make a cardigan out of the tube.
