[quote=suzeeq;1286429]Yes, CO at the beg of the row using a knit or cable cast on, then knit those sts and the old ones. I guess you’ll have to CO with the backward loop at the end of the row, then turn and CO 4, but you might as well turn first and CO 8, knit the new and old sts, then turn and CO 4 at the beginning. Usually sts are caston at the beg only of successive rows so it makes a gradual line along the edge of the piece. So you could just CO 4 at the beginning of the next 4 rows, especially if you just continue to knit in pattern after the sts are added. What’s the pattern?
No link…I have a CD with the pattern from Interweave Knits
It is called Streakers Shrug.
Here is what the pattern says:
Sleeves: (RS) using the knitted method CO 2 sts at the beg of next2 rows then CO 4 sts at beg and end of foll 2 rows, then CO 8 sts at beg of foll 6 rows . Work even in ST st until sleeve measures 10"
The shrug is done all in one piece from cuff to cuff
