I don't think there is any way I can steek this sweater:
1. I didn't knit it in the round
2. I don't own a sewing machine
3. I am way too much of a scaredy cat!!
I thought about knitting it in the round, but decided not to because of the self striping nature of the yarn. I think I can have better control of the striping if I knit it in pieces. I want all of the colors to line up (like in the photo above).
I do have another question, if any of you are game, would you knit some kind of border to sew the zipper on?
I was thinking of doing a garter stitch border or maybe a seed stitch border? I am afraid that the st stitch edge will look scraggely.
I think this border would only be 2-4 stitches wide as this yarn knits up to 3 sts/in.
PS. Thanks for the zipper tutorial!! That will totally come in handy!
