I purchased the cardigan no3 pattern from myfacouritethings.knitwear and having difficulties in short row shaping on sleeve part.
Pick up 80 (84) 88 (94) sts along the armhole opening’s edge
Start the round down at the armhole opening, i.e. centre under the sleeve and place a stm at the round’s beginning. Cut the yarn.
TIP! This round of sts is describes as ‘pick up round’ when knitting your sleeve cap.
Slip 24 (26) 28 (27) sts onto the right needle.
Take a new piece of yarn and k 8 sts, cast on 4 new sts.
k 4 (4) 4 (6) sts, cast on 6 sts, repeat - in total 3 times. k 4 (4) 4 (6) sts, cast on 4 sts, k8.
You have now cast on 26 new sts and there are 5 holes along the shoulder. Those holes will be closed, once the garment is finished.
There are 106 (110) 114 (120) sts on the needle. You will now shape the sleeve cap with short rows.
- This is where I am at the moment - Size S*
Then at each short row you will include 1 st from your pick up round, while reducing the amount of sts at the sleeves by decreasing.
Continue knitting as follows:
k the first 58 (58) 58 (66) sts and include 1 st from your pick up round.
Im not sure where the ‘first 58 sts’ i have to make when I still have more 26 sts to go to till the first round. Also, i am not sure exactly what it means by ‘1st from pick up round’ which 1st is it?
