Good evening everyone !
My very first sweater is currently being blocked. It’s a top-down circular yoke sweater, “Galane” by Marie-Amélie Designs. I find that the increases (M1) are very visible on the yoke. It doesn’t bother me too much, honestly I’m just very happy I’ve knitted my first sweater, but just for my understanding and learning, why is it so visible? Would a different type of increases be more discrete? Are increases generally it more visible on reverse stockinette? Is it my choice of yarn (100% superwash wool)?
I’ve read somewhere that traditionally circular yoke sweaters were knitted bottom-up because decreases were less visible than increases, but I’ve looked at pictures of other top-down sweaters and the increases were definitely more subtle than on my sweater. !
