The Blackberry Pie sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. The collar begins with a tubular cast on—there's a video tutorial for it—then is worked in ribbing. There are some optional short-rows to raise the back neckline. Stitches are increased every round for the motif section, then the increases shift into the ribbing sections on every other round for the rest of the yoke. The body and sleeve are divided and worked separately. The ribbing on the sides of the body is worked diagonally by increasing at the center and decreasing on the sides  as it's worked. I highly recommend using the tubular bind-off at the hem and cuff for a matching look to the collar cast on. There's a video link to that too.
