now I am trying to knit the arisaig sweater from knitty http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTarisaig.html and am getting frustrated with the ribbing.
the way it is now on the needles, the ribbing is a couple inches narrower than it says it should be for my size, but it could fit by not stretching it so much and I really don’t want to start over again. (this is the third time and I don’t want to ruin the yarn, too.) also, when I checked the gauge on the lace part it seemed like the top section would end up too big if I went up to the next larger size.
so I’m wondering - is the ribbing supposed to stretch during blocking, or can I knit 2 sections of ribbing for the sides after and somehow mush them in somewhere, or do I really need to just start over and hope the top somehow doesn’t come out 3 sizes too big?
or maybe there is some other way to do it? I hope so!
& hope that makes sense to someone.
