Hello again, I’m wondering if there is some sort of formula for picking up stitches; meaning, if I have more stitches than picked-up stitches that are called for, how do I decide which ones to pick up and which ones to skip?
At the moment, I’m trying to fix the stockinette curl of the arm band on a vest I made last winter. I followed the pattern, but the armholes still rolled under. I frogged both the finished armholes and added an I-cord bind off to one arm but it still wants to curl under. I’m going to try the k1p1 ribbing on the other arm to see if that helps.
The garment is knitted from Wool-Ease, which is mostly acrylic with about 30% wool. I blocked the garment originally, but after being worn, it reverts back to curling. Grr.
