Making a side slit

I would like to make a small slit up the sides of my sweater. How do I do that?

You start the front and back separately, knitting them a couple of inches or however long you want them, and join to knit in one piece. If they’re already knit separately, just don’t seam the lower edges.

Thanks for responding! I should have said I am knitting from the top down so its all in one piece. Do you have a solution for that? thanks

Oh, well when you get to where you want the slit, simply knit them separately. Finish the back or front, then knit the other side to match.

Of course! Thank you so much. This is my first time to use this site and it works! D
