This little sweater has been on my list of “things to knit” for a couple of years, but my fear of seams kept me from tackling it earlier. In the end the seaming did take three hours, but it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I had imagined.
I neglected to read the pattern specs carefully enough, which resulted in a larger front panel than I needed. For the picture, the sweater is backwards in order to make the buttons visible. While I like the idea of open shoulder flaps, I’d like to find a way to knit this pattern in the round.
