It's not a world record, but this sweater went together pretty darn quickly. And actually, I've had the assorted pieces done for a week, it just took me awhile to get around to assembling them.
I'll post tutorials this week, with lots of pics, for cutting/setting sleeves in a seamless sweater tube, and for neckline shaping. It's not necessarily easier to do both of those things this way- there are no pre-set guidelines for cutting. On the other hand, there are no pre-set guidelines for cutting, which means you can cut and shape and design your sweater after all of the knitting is done. It's wonderfully freeing.
