Here is a cardigan I've just finished for my 2 year old daughter. It was designed using knitware software and is worked in Jaeger Matchmaker Merino DK yarn. It was very quick and easy to do, and there were no seams to sew!

This is beautiful! I would love to make something like this! Does the knitware software convert automatically to crochet? Where do you find it? And, how did you make it without any seams?

Who needs knitting when you can make things like this with crochet!

knitware is available here - http://www.greatknitdesigns.com/index.html
I used the free demo version to make this. It has options for knit and crochet instructions. This was crocheted in the round.

It turned out absolutely beautiful.  You have a really good eye for color. 

Question:  the bobbly looking things:  are they just  3dc in one stitch/spece?  Looks cool.  Nice way to add a design element without throwing off the pattern stitch count.

Thanks for the knitware link! But now, since I still consider myself a "beginner (maybe early intermediate) crocheter," I have another question: How do you crochet in the round and add sleeves? I could probably get to the armpits I know you started at the top because I saw an earlier pic of the WIP) and then I'd come to a grinding halt!

And, I'm guessing that if I knew the answer to this, then I could probably figure out mittens and gloves, too!

Rina -The bobbly bits in the yokes are (2 half double crochet in one stitch, miss a stitch) across, then next row 2 HDC between each 2 half double crochet (a bit like doing granny squares). For the edging I did the same, but inserted by hook in the stitch below (i.e. under 3 strands instead of 2) to give a sort of fairilse look.

craftADDchick - I crocheted this from the top down, basically you increase every few rows for the yoke, and end up with a big circular piece, then you divide for the fronts, sleeves and back. You then join fronts and back (missing out the sleeve stitches, and then work on the body stitches. When these are finished, you pick up the sleeve stitches and work the sleeves.
