Take it from the Top

Most of us have at one time or another knit a sweater with all of it pieces and then of course put it aside because honestly I don't know ANYONE who just loves to sew all the pieces together.  On top of that I personally have experienced what I will refer to as armhole sew together H E double hockey sticks....otherwise I will try to sew the sleeve in and find out that it just doesn't fit.  Well folks those days are over, really I swear :)  Just follow along and you will learn one of the most fascinating techniques for knitting a sweater.  At first it does seem a little scary but just keep at it and I highly recommend trying a smaller one first just so you can get the hang of the process.

How interesting! My mom used to crochet sweaters, dresses, hats, etc for me and my sister when we were little. They all looked very complicated to make. I made some simple stuff, like little purses, but never tried clothes. Sounds like this is perfect way to start one. Thanks for the review!
