Hello wise knitters
I’m new to the forum, but have been using the site for quite a while now and I have a question.
I am going to be knitting some arm warmers for my sister in law for Christmas and I found a pattern that I just love, but I want to knit it in the round.
Here is the pattern link. She has them set to knit on size 8 straights (pattern is for a guy), and I was thinking of knitting them on my size 5 dpn’s (they’re the only dpn’s I have at the moment, and my SIL has very slender arms).
I’ve read that you subtract 4 stitches to make up for the seam allowance, does that mean I would subtract two stitches at the beginning, and two stitches at the end of every row/round?
And then the odd rows I would have to do backwards in order, and also opposite in stitching (k instead of p the row/round).
All the cable work is done on odd numbered rows, so it seems like that makes it easier as far as converting.
Thanks in advance, I am so excited about this pattern; I may end up knitting a pair for myself when I’m done with hers!
