The best thing about this sweater is that it's worked in the round to the armholes, then the front and back are worked separately to the shoulders which are joined by working a three needle cast/bind off. Then the edgins around the armhole and v-neck are knitted on. This means no sewing up and minimal finishing. Just block it and weave in the ends and you're done. Perfect for knitters with 'finishing' phobia.
Do you have a finishing phobia? Although I love sweaters knitted in the round, I also love seams and I think good seams and other finishing techniques is something every knitter should learn. So I'm running my Profesisonal Finishing Techniques for Hand-Knitters online course again. Through videos and pdf photo tutorials (mostly videos though), you'll learn
- how to block your garment pieces (wet block, steam block, lace and cables)
- shaping tricks to make finishing a lot easier
- how to sew up your garment using mattress stitch on the knit and purl side of the fabric
- how to set in fitted sleeve caps
- how to pick up for collars and button bands
- how to knit one row button holes.
