because I cannot decide.

I have a BSJ done and ready to be sewn up, and it has been that way for quite some time now.


Because I cannot decide how I want to sew up the sleeves. Should I mattress stitch? crochet a slip stitch? Make the seams blend in or should the seams be a promineent design feature?

All you BSJ knitters out there, what did you do?



  • I-cord, for my first (and so far only )completed. I'm working on an I-cord castoff for my second, but I haven't decided on seams yet.

  • I used matress stitch on the shoulders and then usually either icord (for boys) around the edge or crochet lace for girls.

  • I used a 3 needle bind off for the shoulders and a rolled hem for the cuffs, knit circularly.

  • Of course I don't remember! Except that I was afraid of the sewing, and it turned out easy and lovely. I used the same colour as the cast-on row, and it is quite invisible. Go and sew. You always can rip! ;-)
    (I did no edging. The sweater is tiny and my wool not so. I wanted to keep the edges as simple and thin)
