If you're not following a pattern, then the typical construction for a seamless sweater goes as follows:
knit the body to the armpits. put x stitches at each armpit on waste yarn for underarm
knit both sleeves to the armpits. put x stitches for armpit on waste yarn to later graft to underarm
knit across half the sweater to the armhole. then knit the remaining stitches for the first sleeve.
knit across the back half and add the second sleeve the same way.
knit the yoke, decreasing to the neck (either raglan or balanced for round yoke)
graft underarm stitches.
