I have just recently started knitting. For my first project I completed a cabled knit blanket. I am now under taking my second project, a patterned knit sweater.
I completed the back panel, and pocket linings as per the pattern; with no issues. However, I measured the width of the back panel, and measured the width of the front-left panel currently working on my needles . This is when I realized the sweater is coming in at 42” around… and my dad is 44” around…so the size is coming in a bit snug.
Is there a way to make increases on the from left and right panels to compensate for this? I’ve googled around and I believe there is… it’s just not making a lot of sense to me.
Thanks for your time,
