I started this BSJ before I seamed the shoulders on the sweater in yesterday's post, so I didn't just knit it overnight. It is made with Lion Wool (worsted on size 8 needles).
The BSJ is quick because is comprised of 115 rows of knitting and an optional collar. It is knit in one piece, and is a gangly-looking thing before seaming.
The sleeves are formed by folding the edge up to the shoulders. The shoulder edge is then seamed.
I use bobby pins to clip the two edges together. The pins work great because the tips are smooth and do not snag the wool and are easily removed. By using a mattress stitch, the seams are barely visible.
This sweater sports a mandarin-type collar. I haven't found the right buttons yet, but they will be added soon.
