On the needles, but.........

I figured out my gauge and size and I now have a question. Have some of you knit the entire back and two front panels together? This sounds appealing. Any advice? I have 3" of back rib done but I would frog it if the three pieces knit together works well.

Well, I knit all three pieces together (and also am knitting the sleeves in the round). It's not because I don't like seaming... because actually I think it's pretty cool... I just don't like having seams on my garments - they just seem bumpy and uncomfortable.

The three in one thing is totally doable! just make sure to take out 1 selvage stick on each piece that would have been the seam so that your ribbing matches up! :)

I saw it done in one piece on someones' blog, but she made a mistake & twisted one of the cables the wrong way, she had to do some real surgery to it, with scissors! to corect it. That's the only downside I can think of!

The mistake on the cable could happen even if you knit the body in three pieces.

I'm knitting the body in one piece. I don't like the feel of seams either.

I would like to do the sleeves in the round, too, when I get to them.
