To seam or not to seam.....
This "seams" like a silly question but I'm going to ask anyway. I have a pattern for a very simple vest, (bottom up) that is made in three pieces: back and two sides. Is there any reason I can't cast on the total number of stitches and knit all three from the bottem to the armhole then divide and conquer? I HATE seams!!!!

One thing I forgot to mention is that you can always put in "fake" seams a la EZ if you want. (You probably already know this.) Theoretically, it may improve the structure of the vest, making it easier to fold and so forth.

I do vaguely remember reading instructions for making a fake seam, slipping the knit row or something? I'll google it.

Thanks.

I do hate seaming, although with the video on this I FINALLY learned how to do it right.
