Front and sleeve steeks are sewed and cut, and the shoulder seams are finished.
I used the "knit and bind-off technique"on the shoulders
Front and back of shoulder are placed on needles one size smaller than those used for body of knitting. Using a needle of the larger size, the front and back shoulder stitches are knitted together. Right needle through both, then knit together.
After two stitches, bind off one and continue until seam is complete.
Someone else can probably explain that better than I, but hopefully you get the idea.
Here's a view of the inside of the finished shoulder seam....
And here's what it looks like from the outside.....
I didn't plan it to look this way, but I'm not dissatisfied. At least both shoulders turned out the same!
One thing I didn't do was shoulder shaping, as I don't have a clue of how to do that in the round.
I also want to share the award I received from The Hyperlexian Aspie. I am honored!
In turn, I'd like to pass it on to:
