Where I’m from it’s getting quite late, and after my mum bullying me into finally knitting something other than a scarf, I decided to make a small baby sweater. The problem is, I have a question and she’s already asleep, so i thought to seek the help of people online.
I’m currently knitting my first sleeve and I have a bit of trouble knowing where to start adding stitches. Here’s part of the pattern (translated to english, seeing as it’s in dutch):
Cast on 38 stitches. Do two rows of rib stitch (1k 1p). After this, knit further in St. st. and add stitches on both sides:
- every 8th row add 1 (on both sides), repeat 4 times.[/I]
Now my question is: I’ve done the rib stitch, but I’m not sure how to continue. Should I knit 8 rows before adding the stitches or add the stitches now and then knit 8 rows and add again?
I myself am thinking the first one (because the whole sleeve seems to be consisted of the 32 rows it’d add up to and 24 rows seems a bit short for a sleeve), but I’m starting to doubt myself, so if anyone can help me, I’d be really grateful!
Oh, as an extra piece of info: this is a sweater for a 3 month old baby, not sure if that’s relevant though
Thanks a lot!
