So far I’ve got the back and two front sides done on this. Special thanks to knittinghelp for the shaping on the front pieces. I’m at the Sleeves now and need some help. The pattern goes like so:
Sew shoulder seams. Place markers 4 (4, 4½, 5) in. [10 (10, 11.5, 12.5) cm down from shoulder on Front and Back. From RS, pick up and k 26 (26, 30, 32) sts between markers. Work in garter st (k every row) for 2 in. [5 cm].
Should I block the front and side pieces before sewing the shoulder seams?
Is there a particular way to sew shoulder seams together? (and a video or tutorial link for it? I don’t mind searching - just if I know there is one to search for).
I don’t know how to “pick up stitches”.
As you can see this sweater is providing a lot of “firsts” for me! I really appreciate all your help
