I am doing a shrug pattern and I am confused as to the cast off.
The pattern calls for - "Using a 5US needle, work the trim for the left sleeve back and forth in seed stitch for one inch. (I got that) then Cast off loosely. Seam.
Question - what would be the best CO method to use?
I have never done this before. I have to do this on the right side then pick up stitches in the middle of the garment for the ribbing on I guess the top and the bottom.
The rest of the pattern as follows
Pick up stitches for ribbing:
Beginning at the back right shoulder ‘seam’ with right side facing and using the 5US needle, pich up stitches (which I have kept live) around the entire edge for ribbing as follows:
Back neck section: 20
Left Front: pick up 54
Lower back section: transfer stitches from stitch holder to the 5US needle.
Right Front: pick up 54
This gives a total number of 208 stitches. Work in K2 P2 ribbing for 1 inch. BInd offin the ribbing using the US8 needle.
Any help is welcome. This looked like a simple garment as a one skein item but now I am not so sure
