Once you've completed knitting the sleeves down to the cuffs, there's just a couple of steps left on your Granton!

Closeup of Granton buttonband with one row buttonholes against a white wooden backdrop.

For the button band, you'll pick up stitches up one front, around the neck, and down the other front. When picking up from the front pockets, make sure to pick up through both layers as one to close the edge. Then work the ribbed button band with one-row buttonholes. Block the sweater (opened up flat if you have the space) before seaming the sides.

Here's the seamed shoulder and picked-up sleeve:

Completed shoulder and sleeve of Wardie and Granton, before seaming.

To seam the sides of Granton or Wardie, clip the edges together from the RS and use mattress stitch to seam from cuff to hem.

Fold the sweater so the sleeves and body edges are aligned, and clip or pin the edges together, making sure everything is even. Then use mattress stitch to work the two long seams, from the sleeve cuff up to the underarm, then down the side. Make sure to stitch through both layers on the fronts, and leave the ribbing open at the bottom for the side vent.

Use mattress stitch to seam the sleeve and side, leaving the ribbing open at the bottom for side slits.

Weave in all your ends and sew the buttons on, and you're done!

Save this tutorial for later on Pinterest!

Eight weeks ago, as school closures were announced here in the UK, we made the decision to pause shipping physical goods until we'd had time to take stock and figure out how to continue. After a week or so we came back with a plan: to do a small update every Monday, cycling through our stock so that only a limited range would be available each week.

We love this incredible, wearable hug of a shawl, which Ashtan Albright knit and we enjoyed her account of the process even more. It might be just the motivation you need if you're not sure you can knit lace.
