Anthropologie capelet question

I posted this in Patterns but thought I might get a quicker response in here (sorry if that’s bad form :frowning: ).

I know a lot of people have done this - has anyone done the increases on the knit side instead of the purl side?

I just got almost to the ends of the sleeves and had to rip back bc one of my rows of increases was slanted in the wrong direction…

It was sort of like this:

/ | |center| \ \

Instead of a straight line, it was slanted to the side. Now, I think the ones in the back should be, but not the front right?

Does that make sense?

Anyway, I thought the mistake might be bc I never did an increase on a purl stitch before and maybe I messed it up.


I answered in the thread…
