Has anyone heard of this? Casting on an extra stitch and then when you join in the round pass it over so that it has a firm join. Does it work? That’s one of my complaints when I’m working in the round, that first stitch always seems sloppy to me. I’m about to start a raglan sweater, would this work when you join in the round after working the top portion flat?
Also a sizing question. I’m going to do Pioneer from Knitty
( http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring09/PATTpioneer.php ) which is designed with 2" negative ease. I’m measuring 32 1/2. The finished measurements listed are 30" and 32 1/2". I’m supposed to make the one that is 2" smaller than my actual bust. But the 30" one will be 1/2" too small. But of course the next size up will be too roomy. Any ideas? The designer is a loose knitter and got this crazy gauge with a sport weight. I’m using a DK instead.
