[size=6][color=blue] :cheering: I am so excited…I have to plug a book that saved a sweater for me ! I knitted this sweater…
using the sweater calculator for raglan style, knit-from-the-top-down sweater…and the neck was too small to fit over my granddaughter’s head.
But I got a book from the library, called KNIT FIX, by Lisa Kartus, that contained some ‘extreme fixes’. One of them taught me to isolate a row that was below the problem area, clip a stitch in the upper row, and as I unraveled, put the stitches on a needle to be knitted in the opposite direction ! This would put your stockinette stitch off by one-half stitch, but if you change to ribbing, which you need to do for the neckline, it looks just fine, and you can reknit a bigger neck ! MY SWEATER IS SAVED ! ! ! :happydance: [/color][/size]
[size=6][color=green]Now, I realize that it is a pretty plain-looking sweater, but it is my FIRST, and was so important for me to SAVE !
Anyway, I hope this information will be of some help to another new knitter ![/color][/size] :teehee:
