I’m knitting a raglan sweater for DS (my first sweater!!), and I’m working on the sleeves. I’m a little confused about the directions, though - it just says to increase on each side every 4th row, but doesn’t say what kind of increase to use. A yarn over would leave a hole in the fabric, right? Are there other, better increase methods to use instead?
Here is an excerpt from the pattern:
With smaller needles cast on 20 sts.
Work in k1, p1 rib for 2"
Change to larger needles and working in St st, inc 1 st each side every 4th row 6 times, 32 sts.
