i am having a terrible time trying to figure out how to correct a mistake in a pattern. the instructions are for a "corded" sleeve edge. it's a short, cap sleeve with slight puffiness and the corded edge means there's nothing else needed to do... such as knitting up sts and making a band or something.
so............ the instructions say:
Corded edge: 3 sts each end of row:
Row 1(WS): K3, pulling yarn tight, work to last 3 sts, sl 3 with yarn in front.
Row 2: K3, pulling yarn tight, work to last 3 sts, sl 3 with yarn in back. Rep rows 1 &2 for pat. .
but, when i do this, the right sleeve edge looks corded but the left merely looks like stretched-out (elongated) knit stitches at the end. they do not match up at all.
i've tried several different ways to make them look the same but nothing i do works. i have looked on the net for help, and here, to try to find something about a 'corded sleeve edge' st.. but can find nothing
i hope someone out there can figure out what i should be doing instead, to make the sleeve edges look the same.
thanks for any help anyone can give.[/I]
