i am new to this forum. Through this website, i started learning knitting and now i am in a stage to knit a sweater. Thanks to Amy for such wonderful videos.
Now i am working on Bumble bees sweater, listed in the free patterns of this site. i got some doubts in this, i hope somebody will clarify this for me.
I am working on the back of the sweater.
- In the shape armholes part, the butterfly stitch is in the middle(as i finished row 6, still 6 more rows to go to for finishing butterfly stitch), but the armholes already measure 51/2 inch, which is the final specification stated. Do i need to continue to finish the pattern or can stop at that point and proceed to next step??
2.In the next section Shape shoulders, it is given like this.
At beginning of next 4 rows, (each armhole edge) BO 5 (6) stitches.
BO remaining 22 (23) stitches for back of neck.
i didn’t understand the above instructions. What stitch i have to do for the next 4 rows? do i continue the butterfly stitch for 4 rows or anything else. Please explain this for me.
