Just thinking - trying to avoid raglan seaming
I am making yet another baby cardigan, I usually end up making a bottom up raglan, but I am fed up of seaming. Seems a waste of wool too.
I am thinking about knitting the back and two front panels as one flat piece. I am just not sure about how to handle the sleeves. I was thinking about knitting up to where I would normally cast off for the sleeves, but instead of casting off 5, just keeping those stictches on a stitch keeper, then doing the same with the last stitch of every row on the way up when decreasing. Then I was thinking that when I knit the sleeves I could graft the sleeves on... Would this work this way or is there a better way. Not sure how others have handled this!
