Someone here suggested adding a gusset to increase the size of my too-small sweater. She got this idea from “Knitting in Plain English” which turns out to be quite helpful in other ways. I plan to knit an inch and a half width of fabric the length of the sleeves and sides of the sweater. Since the front band of the cardigan is a rib stitch, I thought making the gusset in rib stitch would make it coordinate with the front band and look like it was designed that way. Does anyone have a suggestion as to the best seam to make when I connect the rib stitch gusset to the stockinette main body and sleeve?
Thanks. I love this forum! It’s so helpful!
