You knit the two fronts diagonally towards the back centre and then join the two fronts to knit the back across them. I guess I shouldn't reveal more details than that as I don't own the copyright although it's tempting.
However, it's quite safe to reveal that I discovered I had made a mistake knitting the the first front section, ending up with a few stitches fewer than I was supposed to - and corrected it by adding a few rows with increases and making the same mistake on purpose while knitting the second one.
It saved a lot of time and will hardly make any difference when it comes to size; the important thing must be having the same number of stitches when it's time to join the sections.
The construction and colour changes make this a rewarding project to knit, but I do prefer more pattern, to tell you the truth. I accidentally typed "yell you the truth" first! Must be the season ;-)
