Hi! I need advice on this problem - I am knitting a cardigan with criss cross stitch, I have knitted the body and now I am knitting sleeves (I picked up sts for them), I am knitting in the round on circ needles but the pattern just doesn’t look right - there are some gaps or the stitches don’t cross. I have odd number of sts and I work them the same same way as I worked the body of the cardi. I had to frog it few times. What am I doing wrong?
What pattern are you doing? I’m not familiar with Criss Cross stitch. We need more info. I can say that working in the round from a pattern written for working flat with no changes usually doesn’t work well.
the pattern for cardigan is Dreamy weave cardigan the sts cross each other
Try this tutorial. The stitch has to be worked a bit differently in the round as GG said. There’s a neat fix for the gap between rounds at the end of the tutorial:
For anyone interested in this lovely stitch, here’s the tutorial for flat basketweave on the diagonal:
I’m interested in the yarn you used in the photo. The colors are so lovely.
Thank you very much for the tip I was struggling with the sleeve all day long. I will try it out asap. … Actually, the photo was from google, my colors are much more dull
Is this your pattern?
Yes, it is. I think the problem was that I did not follow the 1 stitch shifting as I am beginner to the knitting in the round.
Sometimes with pattern stitches like this you have to shift. It happens with herringbone in the round too.
