I so appreciate everyone’s help! This is my first cardigan. I’m on the yoke and it says to continue with the increases so the piece measures 10 1/4 inches from neck edge to mid front. To get to that measurement my stitch count will be more than the pattern. It doesn’t say what to do with those stitches. Do I decrease to match their count? I’m doing the XL size.
Then, when I separate the sleeves from body, am I reading it that I do that from knitting a wrong side row? If so, my last yarnovers won’t be knitted but just slipped onto the scrap yarn? When I start knitting the sleeves, won’t my yarn overs leave holes?
Thank you so much. I worry that if I’m not matching the pattern exactly I’m doing it all wrong. . Sometime, does it not match up exactly?
