I very much prefer knitting raglan sweaters in the round, but although I do knit flat sweaters sometimes. How do you usually do it?
The sweaters I knit in the round get done a lot faster than the seamed ones. Not the knitting part–the seaming. I can do it just fine, but man, it’s hard for me to get motivated. I have two that are waiting for the seaming fairy to come. I think she’s avoiding me, so I may have to break down and do it myself. :pout:
LOL thats funny.
I’ve only done two really, but I don’t seem (hahahah…) to mind seaming.
When I knit in the round it just feels like it goes so much slower. I know it isn’t, and it actually saving me time by not having to seam, but…I don’t do as much as quickly.
At least, that’s how I feel. :shrug:
I have a confession to make… I’ve never knit a sweater!! :oo:
But I suppose if I were going to, I’d knit it in the round because I don’t like seaming much either…
Top down, in the round, if given the choice - raglan is my fave as I think it just looks better.
In the round, or for cardigans, top down raglan or one piece. I can seam okay, but I’d rather not and it stalls me out most of the time.
I had to choose flat and then seem because I have not knit a sweater in the round yet … but I think I would perfer that … :oops:
Definately in the round! I haven’t done many sweaters, but I don’t like seaming, and I’m not good at it! My seaming bad experiences have been with things like hats, bags, etc… I probably just need to practice more. However, I working on a sweater and having it actually look like a sweater while in progress!!
I’m not a good seamer so I much prefer seamless! :happydance:
Ooooh, if I leave out some milk and cookies will the seaming fairy come to my house??!!
No, that’s Santa.
Maybe the seaming fairy is like the tooth fairy in reverse…she wants cash.

There are actually people who you can hire to finish your sweaters, aren’t there? I thought I saw an ad somewhere for “Finishing Services” or something like that. It doesn’t sound like a very fun job to me.
I would rather knit in the round but most sweaters i like are flat :!!!: I hate seaming.I have done a number of sweaters and you would think I would get used to seaming but I don’t.I’m hoping all sweater patterns will be written in the round in the future :teehee:
There are people who finish sweaters. I’ve heard about a local dentist who sends hers out to be finished. I certainly won’t spend money on that–well, maybe if I win the lottery and can just knit all day long. Or if I become a dentist.
I’ll seam for yarn.
You can convert any pattern to knit it in the round…
