I have made some sweaters, but have never sewn them together. Mostly because I don’t know how and also because I’m too “chicken” to try!! I’ve always had an experienced knitter friend of mine do all my finishing for me.
My latest WIP is a sweater called “Give the People What They Want” by the Yarn Girls. Here’s a link to it on Ravelry:
Anyway, I would like to try & sew this together by myself this time. Are there any online videos or books that you could recommend for me to learn how to sew the pieces of a sweater together? I have sewn garter stitch baby sweaters together with great success, because I can match up the ridges pretty well and babies don’t care how things look in the end.
And ALSO, what order do I do the sewing in? Do I sew the sleeve to the body first and then do 1 big seam down the sleeve/body? Or do I sew each sleeve into a tube and then sew it onto the body??? I REALLY need help because I don’t want to mess this up!!
THANKS for your help!!
