I recently finished knitting a lovely child’s sweater in Rowan All Seasons Cotton using Louisa Harding’s ‘Doctor Cardigan’ pattern from Miss Bea’s Dressing Up pattern book. The pattern called for me to back stitch the shoulder seams, which I did. I thought they were way too bulky but I soldiered on. I have now seamed the sleeves to the body and completed one side seam. I am unhappy with the side seam and am preparing to pull it out.
I was reading through a couple of my knitting books last night and they recommended weaving all seams including the shoulders. I think this is the method I had used years ago….
My question is: should I take out all of my seaming, including the shoulders and start over? (The trim on the sweater required me to pick-up stitches to add it, so I will need to keep a portion of the shoulder seaming intact……oy vey) Help!
