I'm about to knit a child's cardigan, but want to adapt the pattern so that I can knit it in one piece, bottom-up, adding the stitches of my half-knitted sleeves to the needle when I reach the appropriate point. My sleeves will be knitted flat, though, and seamed afterwards, as I am useless at knitting on in the round on double-pointed needles.
The thing I'm most unsure about is what to do where the original pattern starts the armhole shapings on all the pieces with "cast off 3 sts".
Do I cast off those three stitches before I put the sleeve stitches on the same (circular) needle as the body, then sew those bits up when finishing the garment, or should I be doing something else?
I know some of you are experts at such things, and I'd be really grateful if you could help me out ☺
