I absolutely LOVE this forum - I’ve been lurking around for awhile, watching videos, reading messages, but this is the first time I’ve posted a question.
I’ve just started working on my first sweater (from Summer '06 Vogue Knitting “The Art Issue,” page 36). I think it’s a little above me, skill-wise, but figured it would have a greater learning curve, as well.
The directions I’m questioning are for the back of the sweater and read as follows:
Cast on 83
Work in K3, p3 rib (which includes a selvage stitch at either end)
Dec 1 st each side (inside of selvage sts) every 4th row 6 times –
And the questions are (drumroll please):
- Is it okay to just knit 2 together for these decreases, or will that mean the entire back of my sweater will slant to the right?
- Do I just ignore the selvage sts during this? Won’t the gap increase?
Thanks if you can, and I’m glad to be here!
