I want to knit up the Little Miss Strawberry sweater (by Jodi Snyder, in the Creative Knitting Magazine, March 2008 issue), but without the long sleeves. Any reason I can't just not do the sleeves? I was thinking I could just go around and do a crab stitch. Any other ideas?
If you need to see the sweater, there's a pic in the What'cha Knittin' section here or in my Ravelry notebook, since I've already knit one.
