I have seen some patterns that start at the sleeve cuff and you knit across the arm to the body and across the other arm and then the other cuff. A kind of one piece sweater. Not sure what they are called but have seen them on the usual free knitting sites. allfreeknitting, etc...

There's the 5 hour baby sweater, it's fairly simple and knitted from the neck down, seamed only on the sleeves and not even there if you knit in the round. Stitches required are K, P, Knit front and back, Knit 2 together, and Make one by picking up bar between the stitches. Just Google it, there are several websites with different versions of it. Fiber Gypsy is the one I like the best.

Here is a link to the "Leisure Arts Knitted Seamless Raglans 9 months to size 50." I bought it in the 70s and still use it for pullovers...good patterns. I paid $3 but it is now listed for $15 for a used one. It has a "basic cardigan" pattern for size 9 months to size 50. The instructions are in both sportweight and worsted weight yarn. This is my favorite pattern book.

I made one called baby sidewinder sweater from Creative Knitting March 2010 that had side seams and a crochet edge. It was easy to do.
