I created a seamless sleeveless sweater for our daughter recently. Its cool to wear on a dark full sleeve dress in cooler autumn days! Hope you like it too.
The trick to making this seamless is, knitting the front and the back sides as one continuous piece. Once the required width is knitted (enough to cover the torso of the toddler) then bind the stitches.I used moss stitch (sabudana veen) to get this effect and I inserted few plain stitches to create a rib effect.
Place the fabric in circular fashion and decide where the opening should be ( you can keep the opening on either side to give a different look. Then mark the width and the length of the required shoulder belts.
I decided to keep it old fashioned with centre opening and measured six stitches for each belt. Pick-up the six stitches from the knitted piece and create the belt. Sew the other end of the belt to the other side of the knitted fabric with woollen needle.
Sew touch buttons on open ends and attach fancy buttons to finish the look.
