“By using steeks, it’s possible to knit even cuff-to-cuff sweaters seamlessly. Sideways sweaters are, of course, a great choice when you want to make vertical stripes.”

SIde-to-Side Sweater is the final project using circular knitting techniques taught in this book. This pattern makes a sample size (3mo baby size?).
Also included are instructions: “For a different look, try this”, and “Any size, any yarn”.

“New Techniques used:
Picot hem at cast on/bind off.
Helix pattern with changing colors.
Increasing at center of sleeve to taper sleeve and shape sleeve cap
Making a closed seam by casting on and picking up stitches along the bottom of the cast on.
Steek for bottom and neck openings..
Shaping a sideways neck.
cutting front for cardigan opening.”
