I’m knitting the hourglass sweater from last minute knitted gifts. As some of you know, it’s a simple bottom up raglan. I knit the sleeves already so far in the smallest size - because those are the ones that fit my arms. Between the width of my shoulders and my chest however, it became clear that I would be better off knitting the next size up (the 37) for the body.
I think that I know :teehee: that something might go wrong around the armhole area. The reason I think this is so, is because I can see that creating the yoke involves sort of joining the sleeves to the needle holding the body, and then attaching them to eachother - and there are fewer stitches to accomplish that with on the smaller size sleeves than there are on the medium sized sleeves - and vice versa.
So what would I do here? Do I even have my finger on the point of the possible problem?
I’m inclined to just cast on some extra stitches under the arm, but if I’m not mistaken there’s a difference of about 20 or stitches that are used to join the sleeves to the body and I worry that there’s some problem lurking of which I’m not aware.
