In most of my sweaters you will only have two short seams on each shoulder; the top, bound-off edge of the front to the sloped back shoulder and the top, bound-off edge of the sleeve to the side of the front. Since there are only two little seams it’s worthwhile getting them right.
I often knit yarn on a larger needle than suggested because I like open, drapey fabric. When you do this, be careful when you measure your knitting.

The balls are fun to make and display, even if you never knit anything with your “yarn”.
