Steeks and Armhole Shaping

Is it possible to steek a set-in shoulder? Is shaping even possible with steeks? I’m just wondering because I want to knit a sweater in the round, but a set-in shoulder is much more flattering for me than a drop shoulder.

The neckline of a steeked sweater is shaped, so I don’t see why the armhole can’t be. Just do the shaping on the stitches on either side of the steek.

Thanks Ingrid!

I’ve noticed that you tend to be the only one who answers my questions (not always, though) perhaps I’m a bit off the wall, eh?

No, but when you ask questions about steeks, I suspect people think, “Eh, let Ingrid get that one.” :wink:
