I’m knitting my first sweater ever, and I basing it on this sweater I bought that was just tooo easy not to clone.
The sweater is knitted all in one piece (ie. front is all one piece and the back is another) using ribbing pattern. The sleeves are knitted along with the body such that you start by knitting the sleeve cuff, the sleeve, increase stitches for the body, the body, then decrease again for the sleeve and end up with the other sleeve’s cuff. (Hope that makes sense!)
I got to the part where I’m decreasing for the sleeve and I’m having a problem. I removed all the stitches for the body part but the sleeve itself must be decreased gradually with one stitch removed per right row, for 9 rows. How do I do that?! I think I have to knit two stitches together but I’m not sure which two (first two or second two!?)
Anyways, I did try the second two and that looked incorrect. I’m not sure if I should just bind of the first stitch either…
Any ideas?! Anyone?!..Thanks
PS. Another question, how do I do a slit down the middle of the front of the sweater, such that it is slightly slanted but not a v-slit?!
