A fun Knit a Long just in time for the fall :-) The pattern is in the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits.
I slip-stitch crocheted the arms into the armhole and mattress stitched the sides. Good luck! :)
I used a "fake" kitchener stitch (same technique but the stitches aren't live) for the shoulder seams, mattress stitch for the side seams and for setting the sleeve I used both of those combined with a hybrid technique (half kitchener and half mattress) stitch were I was attaching stitches that were perpedicular to one another.I find the key to pretty seams is figuring out the direction of the stitches and using the technique that works for that orientation of stitch. The Stitch n' Bitch book has, IMO, a pretty good discussion of seaming if you have it handy.There are some good instructions on how to do those techniques here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.phpGood luck and keep us posted on how you make out!
Thanks for the tips! I dug out my SnB book - and forgot all about it. yes, a bit of a book fetish...so thank's for the reminder. Great illustrations. A cup of coffee and an excedrin and I'm ready to start seaming!
