This is a pattern question I think. I’m knitting my first jumper, it’s a drop shoulder pattern so I thought the sleeve tops would be straight but the pattern says
" Cast of 13 sts at beg of next 6 rows. Cast off remaining sts"
So this will make the sleeve top angled. Is this usual?
Also i like to make life difficult by trying to find the most streamlined technique which may differ from instructions. If I wanted to bind off at beginning and end of rows (rather than beg of each row) for symmetry. Would I bind off 13 sts at the beginning and end of each row over 3 rows? or bind off less stitches each row to do the process over 6 rows? Does this question make sense?
Any leads, ideas would be appreciated. This is such a great forum!
