If anyone has time could you help me with my armhole shaping on my lace cardigan? I’ve spent hours searching on the forum but I can’t find how to do this.
I am starting my armhole decreasing and it is chevrons and I am totally stuck!
At the moment I have 47 stitches. My pattern says:
1st row: patt2tog, pattern to end (46 stitches left)
2nd row: patt to last 2 stitches, patt 2 tog (45 stitches left)
The full rows are:
1st row: (k1, s1, k1, psso, k3, yfwd, k1), yfwd, k3, s1, k2tog, psso, k3, yfwd, k1
2nd row: purl
The following rows (there are 8 in the lace pattern) are variations of row 1 except the holes move on a stitch.
Could you please tell me how I do this decrease when the second stitch is a slip stitch? I am ready to scream :-)!!
I did also try to replace the bracketed stitches with plain stocking which is how I did the back armholes but it’s not worked this time. I only ended up with 45 instead of 46. I might have done it wrong though as I used 7 knit stitches and knitted two together at the start which could be totally wrong?
I do love knitting lace but for a beginner it is so confusing ha ha. Thank you!
