I’m knitting my former boss and his wife this adorable baby sweater called Baby Sophisticate.
This is the first sweater I’ve ever knit, and I’m having issues knitting the sleeves. The pattern calls for 26 sts to be transferred from a stitch holder onto DPNs and knit until the piece reaches 6". Once that’s finished, one is supposed to knit 7 rows of garter stitch in the round and BO all sts in knit.
I’m terribly confused because the underarms appear a bit large. I’m not sure if I need to pick up sts on the underarm in order to knit in the round and close up the gap, or just attempt to join in the new yarn and try to knit that way, which hasn’t worked because I haven’t been able to get a clean join. How does one knit in the round without a tail and working yarn on the right needle? Am I knitting in raglan shaping? I have no idea.
I am unable to post photos directly to the forum, but have them should anyone request them.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
