Bluebell is knit in the round from the bottom up. A traditional “envelope” style neck in a contrast color adds visual interest as well as ease in pulling over babies and children’s proportionally larger heads. The sleeves are knit separately in the round and then back and forth for the sleeve cap. The armhole is then seamed for added structure and a good fit. It is recommend you seam with the mattress stitch. If you need a refresher, plethora of tutorials and videos can be found on the Internet.
