I just completed my first sweater(**), a miracle in itself, and need finishing help. It is a one piece front and back child's sweater; no separate arms. the arms are just added on each end when you get to that point in the St st from the bottom up.The side finishing was nice and hidden (mattress stitch )but the shoulder seams look pretty rough since the colums were meeting each other rather than side by side! I have started another just like the first one and would like to do a better job. Any suggestions would be very welcome. I am a "self taught" beginner plus! I have knit hats on circular needles successfully and millions of scarves!
** actually my first sweater was horrible....so stretched and huge it would fit our car!!! I keep it as a symbol of my determination to learn this art form!!
