But if the body portion has been converted to working in the round, the side seam will also be closed already so I think it would be a little trickier to sew in the sleeve in this case whether or not the sleeve was worked flat or in the round.
I'm revisiting this thread because I've started on a top down sweater that I'm converting to working in the round. It is a brain challenge, that's for sure!!!
Just so I'm sure....because it's top down, instead of casting stitches OFF when you divide for front and back, I have to cast stitches ON in order to joing it all in the round and start the lower body portion. I'm supposed to cast on 8 stitches on each side of the front and back, according to the pattern, so since I'm doing it in the round should I only cast on 7 stitches each side??
