I posted this a while ago in the general forum but didn’t get a response. I decided maybe if I asked here, in the proper place, I might have better luck.
Basically I am doing the front panels of a cardigan and want to do them on the same circular needle. I cast them on and did the first 6" just fine. Two unconnected, identical front panels. I am totally stumped by the shaping though. It should just be a case of dec at the beginning and end of each row, pretending that the entire 2 pieces is one row (ignoring the fact that I drop one ball of yarn and pu another right in the middle)…but it isn’t. I keep ending up with yarn strands at both ends, or both in the middle.
Why is the shaped part different? Have I just psyched myself out somehow or is what I want to do not possible.
