I’m a beginner knitting a doll cardigan (the “Simple Doll Cardigan” on Ravelry by Xilan Allen with raglan sleeves). When I went in the neighborhood knitting shop, the German woman who works preferred not to sell me two sets of needles to knit this cardigan, as the pattern asks for the sleeves to be knitted on double pointed needles (she said it would make things too pricey and she seemed to doubt I would even finish it…).
She said I should knit the raglan sleeves flat and then join them with a seam along the bottom using a tapestry needle and the yarn. I have found several YouTube tutorials on sleeves, but none where the sleeves are knit flat. I just finished the body so I guess I start the sleeves somehow on the armholes… Can anyone please describe to me how to do this?
