Is it wise, or necessary, to do the sleeves the way the pattern tells you to do them? The pattern calls for knitting the sleeves separate then sewing them into the opening. I’m used to picking up the sts and knitting down to the cuff. That way I’m not stuck with extra sts that I have no where to put them since I’m not the greatest knitter and I have so many lumps and bumps. To me it hides the errors a little better to pick up the sts and go from there.
Should I do what the pattern tells me to do? Or is it okay to go crazy and do what (I think) will be an easier method for me?
