Fall is finally here, and so is A Guide to Seamless Set-in Sleeve Sweaters! This is an ebook on my favorite construction method for sweaters, and it will give you the tools you need to design your own seamless sweaters with short-row, set-in sleeves.
The guide is 17 pages long, and it starts off by giving you a general overview on how the construction method works. It clearly explains how the sweater is knit from the top-down with the short-row, set-in sleeves added after the sweater body is completed. Next, it walks you through the measurements you need to take of the sweater wearer and helps you plan the measurements of the sweater itself. After that, it’s math time! The guide includes all of the basic equations you’ll need to do to calculate your own sweater, leaving it up to you to figure out all of the creative elements and hard details.
At the end of the guide is Plain Jane, a super simple, v-neck cardigan pattern that was designed using the construction information in the guide. It takes all of the theoretical information in the beginning of the guide and puts it to use, so you have an example with real numbers to look at so you can really see how the construction method comes together. You can knit up your own Plain Jane cardigan to get a feel for how all of the parts of the sweater come together before you design your own, or you can just give the pattern a quick read through.
The guide is $12, and you can get it on Ravelry or take a look at it in the Untangling Knots shop. If you’re a fan of my seamless, set-in sleeve sweaters and have wanted to learn how to design your own, this is the perfect guide for you.
