So I decided to alter the pattern for my sweater/top as I didn’t want to knit it in two parts and sew them together. I’ve started to knit it on a circular needle.
The original pattern calls for armhole shaping (decreases on 4 RS-rows). If I hadn’t changed the pattern, I know how to make the sleeve caps and then sew the sleeves to the body before I close the side seams and the sleeves.
What’s the best way to handle the sleeves now when I’ve changed the pattern to be knit in the round? Is it still managable to knit the sleeves flat and attach them before closing the sleeve seam? Or should I knit the sleeves in the round and attach the “tube” to the body?
Any ideas on what the easiest way would be here?
