Worked top down in once piece, joining and turning at the end of each row. It is easy to add extra length to sleeves and body by working extra rows before starting cuffs and welt.
Cuffs, collar and welt could be made in one contrasting colour if you prefer, in which case only one 100g ball of yarn would be required.
