I am in the process of knitting my first sweater and am slightly confused by some the pattern, and some help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Well, first of all while doing the armhole part (which I’ll put below) There seems to be a little gap where my yarn is being pulled almost from the stitches on a holder. It looks like if I were to cut it it would make a circle again like it should, but obviously that’s scary!
Here is the front armhole shaping that I was talking about above:
BO 3 sts, K84 (85 sts on the needle). Slip the remaining 88 sts on a holder for back. BO 3 sts at the beginning of the next row. Work in stockinette for 14 rows, and dec 1 st at each end of the next and every following alternate row; 68 sts. Work even until the front measures approx. 51 cm / 20" (armhole measures approx. 16 cm / 6¼"), ending after a WS row.
Other than that, this part seems to be going okay…
But the next part is intimidating!
Work neck shaping for the two sides separately at both neck edges.
Next row (RS): K27, slip the next 14 sts to a holder. Join a second ball of yarn and K the remaining 27 sts. BO 3 sts once, 2 sts twice, and 1 st twice on every other row at the neck edge. Repeat for the other side, reversing shaping; 18 sts per side.
Does this make sense to anyone? Thanks for any help!
