My first seamless cardigan is finished! I used my usual cardigan pattern in fisherman's rib, and added an extra stitch where the sleeve and side seams would usually be. Knitting the sleeves on three needles and the whole cardigan on four was pretty hair raising at times. By the time I put the whole thing onto two needles, once I was approaching the neck, it was getting quite heavy, but very entertaining with the sleeves dangling down. It was all worth it for the rapid finish once the button band was knitted - no seams, just a little gap to stitch up under each arm and a few tails to weave in.
It was fun using spotty buttons again, and this time I used orange thread to match the orange streaks in the yarn. It should fit my granddaughter Emilia when she is about 12 to 18 months.
