I had to rip out quite a bit because something went way wrong. Instructions say:
Once I get to 19 inches on the front of the sweater…
p37, bind off 16, p 37 stitches.
Decrease row - knit to within 3 sts. of bound of sts.
k2tog, knit 1.
JOIN a new ball of yarn to sts on left needle (HOW DO I DO THIS EXACTLY??)
(you will be working both shoulders at the same time) knit 1, ssk, knit to end of needle.
Next row - p each shoulder with its own strand of yar.
Work these last two rows 5 or more times until there are 31 sts. left on each shoulder.
So I tried all that and I’m not sure I joined the new ball of yarn on correctly - I just winged it.
Then I did as it says… work last two rows… so first row would be purl then the next row would be knit 1, ssk, knit, next would be purl and so on.
Well, I ended up with only 16 stitches on one side and 24 on the other. What on earth did I do wrong???
I ripped it all out and started over so now I’m back to the beginning of joining the new ball of yarn
Can anyone help me???
