Yes, this is for the waist band. I think that the ribbing for the sleeve cuffs should be ok using the smaller size needles, but do you think it would look funny or should I keep it consistent with the waist ribbing?
Thanks for your help - I never thought of leaving the band off so that's another great idea to put into my bag of super tips. :cheering: I've got quite a few retro patterns that I've picked up in charity shops recently - a mere 10p-20p instead of the usual £2.00 + that modern patterns cost, it's great to know how to deal with the adjustments needed to accommodate the changes for the modern female figure.
As always my hat's off to Ingrid for helping me on the knitting way!
