As promised, here are pics of the finished sweater. I've got to admit it: Working with panels of sweater fabric was certainly one quick and easy way to make a sweater! And if I hadn't cut off the bottom ribbing, it would have been even quicker.
I'm generally not one to sew quickly. I've often caught my self doing things "the long way", because I really do enjoy the process, I guess. I've pretty much already blogged this process; here are links to the previous posts all in one place:
- Fabric for a Cable Sweater
- Placing (and Cutting) the First Pattern Piece on Sweater Knit Fabric
- Matching the Texture or Color Patterns in a Cut and Sew Sweater
- A Fancy Neckline
- Hemmed When I Could Have Ribbed
Be sure you're on the email list if you'd like to know the next time sweater knit fabric panels (sometimes called sweater bodies or sweater blanks) become available.
