I’m working on Lorraine Major’s Quick Baby Sweater, and was wondering how to keep the holes and loose yarn from forming under the armholes.
After I divide the fronts/sleeves/back, I knit across to the 1st sleeve, cast on 2 stitches, knit the sleeve, cast on 2 more stitches, then work the sleeve working in the 4 cast on stitches.
I then knit across the back and work the 2nd sleeve the same way, then knit across the other front.
After this, I work the body. No matter how careful I am, there are loose stitches and holes under each armhole. How do I avoid this?
