Still working on my turtleneck poncho and wondering about the following:
Working on the [COLOR=blue]Neck Opening[/COLOR] the pattern states:
[COLOR=blue]Work even until neck opening measures 7 1/2", end with a WS row.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]I either went a little too far, or not far enough because my neck opening measures about 10" after 13 rows. (Using very bulky yarn as called for.) However, the opening I now have would obviously never fit over my head.[/COLOR]
Then I checked ahead in the pattern for the [COLOR=blue]Turtleneck /COLOR and it states:
[COLOR=blue]With RS facing and 16" circular needles, pick up 60 sts evenly around neck opening. Join and work in rounds of k2, p2 rib for 4", etc. etc.[/COLOR]
I counted the stitches I have with the opening size of about 10" and there are only 26 sts. Do I keep knitting until I have at least 60 stitches (30 rows)?? That seems it would be more in line with a bigger opening.
So, now I'm wondering if the pattern means that the rows should be about 7 1/2" long which would give me a total opening of 15". Does that make more sense or am I missing something obvious??
Thanks again for all the great help,
