Sweaters (adult, kids & baby) knit in the round?
I just got my Denise Interchangeable needles, and I'm dying to make a sweater I don't have to seam!

But all I'm finding are sweaters that you knit flat. :(

Can anyone help me find some easy but nice sweaters I can try knitting in the round?
Adult, kids and baby sizes are all fine!

I know I can knit flat sweaters in the round...but I'm still too new to try that. I think I'd be fine until the armholes, and then I'd be lost!
But that's a whole separate post!

Thank you!

Since there are tons of them I'm guessing it's all in the search terms you are using. Try "top down" and "seamless" sweaters.

Do you only want free? Here's some free ones.

Thanks, Jan. That first one is great.

But maybe you can help me with a specific pattern?

I'm hoping to find a cowl-neck or turtleneck that is like the Bernat Worsted Classic Turtleneck or the Bernat Harmony Turtleneck?

Something like those that's knit in the round.

My google-fu just doesn't seem to be working very well because I can't find what I want, specifically. :(

If you want to try what you suggested about going in the round to the armholes, all you do is place a stitch markers so that you know where the seams would be, and when you get to the armholes, put the 'front' stitches and the 'back' stitches onto separate needles and then work the front and back by themselves.

You had me until, "and then separate the 'front' and 'back' stitches onto two straights needles, two circular needles, or keep going in the round by using the steek method."

That's all Greek to me.

Thanks, though! I'm going to go over to the How To forum and post a question there about knitting flat sweaters in the round.
You have me sold that I can actually do it! ...eventually!

Are you on Ravelry? It's one of the best places to search for patterns.

http://philosoknitter.blogspot.com/2008/04/francis.html

The patterns here are almost if not all knit in the round.

That first one is PERFECT! Thank you!

I am on Ravelry, but I must not be putting the right search terms in because neither of those came up when I looked.

Thanks again!

You can knit any flat sweater in the round up to the armholes. CO the number of sts in the front and back COs (less 4 sts that would be used for seaming) then knit up the the underarm shaping. At that point, divide the stitches in half and continue to work on it flat. You can put the other half on stitch holders, leave it on the circs and knit with straight needles or however you want.
