I’m designing a plush with slightly bent arms - I stuffed the first arm yesterday and think I need less stitches on the edges (or sides) so it doesn’t bulge out quite as much around the elbow (is there a name for the front of the elbow? Lol) I’m just not sure how many stitches I need to get rid of. I’d have to increase again after, so wondering if there’s a better way? Maybe cast some stitches off, then cast on again and sew those edges together like a dart? I only did about 4 short rows and I’m thinking it’s best to decrease just before I start the shaping on the next arm, if I go that route.
It sounds like a dart would be the easiest way to shape this, much as I dislike recommending sewing.
Cough into the crook of your elbow, maybe that’s the opposite of the elbow point?
That makes sense! And thanks, I’m not too keen on the sewing idea either (I actually don’t mind sewing up, I just think sewing cast on/off rows together may be tricky, in terms of making it look good), but it’s probably the best way, here. I can maintain the correct stitch count, anyway.
