I have made a sweater before where I seamed the front and back first at the shoulders, then added the sleeves (unseamed) at the shoulder, then seamed up the sleeve from the wrist and down the side of the sweater to the waist.
The one (a cardigan) I am working on now, has me seaming the shoulders and sides and the sleeves and then inseting the sleeves into the holes and seaming them into the sweater.
Is this easy to do? It seems that the other way is easier then putting a sleeve into a hole essentially and matching it up that way. Am I just making it seem harder?
I haven’t gotten to this part yet, just finishing up the first sleeve. But thought I would ask before I got to it. Thanks!
