Touch Me Soft Sweater

level
2/5

This pattern is knitted top down with 1×1 rib stitch. The sweater is partially sewn, partially made without sewing.

The body of the sweater is worked in rows, while the sleeves are worked in the first part with  German short rows, and then in the rounds.

You start by knitting the back to the length you want the sweater to be. Then you pick up the stitches on the back to work the shoulders on the front one at a time while shaping the neckline. The front pieces are joined together at the lower neckline and the front piece is worked completely until it is the same length as the back piece. Then the front and back are sewn together on the sides, leaving room for the sleeves. In the last step, you create the sleeves.
