Hi all. I’ve been working on a sweater all summer and so far it’s coming along great. I’ve got the body of the sweater all together, and the sleeves are finally ready to be attached to the rest of the sweater. I have a question about seaming the sleeves to the body.
Along the shoulder seam, you are working with 2 rows that are bind off rows. Lucky for me they matched pretty well and the seams look good, though I did have to try a couple of times to get it to look right. With the sleeves, I am working with the bind off edge of the sleeve, and the regular knit of the arm hole Is there a way to get this to look really nice?
Part of my problem I think is that the sleeve is just slightly larger than the opening so I will have to gather the sleeve, which of course will be done on the underside of the sleeve, but I’m just wondering if there’s any tips out there for this sort of thing.
Also what would I do if the situation were reversed? What if the armholes were bigger than the sleeve was round?
