I’ve learnt knitting as a child and picked it up again a couple of years ago. I’ve since knitted everything from mittens, socks, hats and scarves. But I’m a bit intimidated by jumpers.
One of the things I’m very unsure of is the shaping. Which increase and decrease methods do I need to use to get a nice shaping? Let’s say a pattern says for shaping sleeves to increase one stitch at each end of every row. Do I then increase as following:
Row 1: K1, M1L, Knit all stitches but 1, M1R
or do I use different increase methods?
And if it comes to decreasing the work, do I k2tog at the beginning of the row and then ssk at the end of the row?
I’d be very grateful for any clarification as this has confused me for a very long time.
Thanks a billion.
