Just spent the last 1/2 hr reading through the forum and picking up some good tips. It’s really worthwhile doing this from time to time even if you don’t have a specific question because there are always gems to dig out. At the very least you can have another giggle at Ingrid’s avatar! :rofling:
My question is for a sleeveless summer top - this is my first real garment (besides hats, mittens, scarves, shawls etc) and I’m petrified.
When the pattern says Cast off (bind off) X stitches at beg of next X rows…is there a trick to how to cast off to make a clean edge because these armholes have no other finish to them?
My other question is a doozer!
The pattern says " After casting off stitches for shaping, one stitch will remain on the right hand needle which is not included in the instructions that follow"
:?? Huh? What do I do with it - keep it on the needle and wear the top with the needle hanging off it??? :roflhard:
Oh me! Like all new knitters I could fill this space telling you what a complete dolt I feel, but thank you experienced knitters :XX: for the time you give us answering our questions!
Look forward to hearing from you
