Hello fellow knitters!
Several hours of me and my mum arguing over button bands and I’m still here on the living room floor at 1am surrounded by a ton of books and patterns trying to find some guidance!
Basically, I’ve knitted the back to a basic long style fairisle cardigan(total 120sts). Now for the front button band would you either:
- half each side and decrease stitches evenly between the two to then create the button band picked up afterwards
- still work a total of 120sts, 60 on each half and create an additional button band?
My main confuzling is around the amount of sts on the front vs the back. If I was to choose the first option wouldnt the front therefore be more ‘tighter’ than the back?
But if I was to add a button band, wouldn’t the front be too loose compared to the back?!
Or am I completely wrong over all…?! :oo:
