What would you recommend for a first sweater? Knit it flat and seam it up, knit in the round from bottom up (Like Elizabeth Zimmerman), or in the round from the top down? I’m leaning towards including a simple cable, since I’ve discovered they don’t seem that difficult to do. I haven’t tried a large piece with cables, so I may regret saying that.
Flat makes sense to me, since I have some garment sewing experience, but I wonder which one people found easier themselves. I’m also thinking with flat you might get some sense of accomplishment as you finished each piece.
