I am knitting this cardigan. The pattern has been a pain so far. It leaves a lot unsaid.
Anyways. I made the front left piece and now I am working on the right. It doesn’t say how to work on the right piece, just “reverse shaping”. I need some help. I have been trying to figure it out but I get the LFFD decrease/shaping too close to the side.
Just so you get a hang of how the stitches get used up:
RFFD=right full-fashioned decrease
s1 knitwise to RH needle, s1 purlwise to LH needle and pass the k st over the p st, sl the resulting st back to LH needle and k2tog (with next k on LH needle)
LFFD= sl 1 knitwise to RH needle, k2tog, pass the sl st over the k2tog.
And this is how the pattern says to do it in the left front piece.[I] I need to reverse these so it looks the same on the right one[/I].
(RS) k1, p1, k1, p1, RFFD, rib to last 2 sts, k2.
(repeat every 4 rows 3 times)
(RS) Rib till last 4 sts , LFFD, k1.
(repeat every 4 rows 8 times)[/B]
So you work these at the same time.
Armhole shaping: I tried to just reverse them but the left decrease ends up closer to the side, I don’t get the last 4 stitches like I get on the left front piece using the RDDF on the armhole there.
Hope you get what I mean.
The LFFD eats up stitches and leaves me only with one and the RFFD still leave me with 4 stitches to knit in the end of the row.
I need help!! :?? :help:
