Sorry, I’ve been looking around online but can’t find any information on this situation!
I’ve knitted a scarf with a particular striped pattern but it’s for my mum, who turns out to be tinier than I realised, and so although I’ve now finished and cast off, I want to make one end shorter.
The trouble is, because of the pattern i need to shorten the end I began/ cast on at. Is it possible to simply cut the yarn where I cast on, unravel to the point I want (as if just knitting normally and going back a couple of rows) and then to cast off again? Or does it not work because that would be knitting in a different direction?
Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated… especially as it is a birthday present which has now typically been left to the last minute!
