I want to knit a cardigan for my grandkids (toddlers) and I’ve found a lot of basic patterns but I want to add a design next to the button band and next to the buttonhole band. I want to have the button band, the pattern (most likely an 8-stitch pattern), and the reverse on the buttonhole side.
If I’m knitting a basic top-down pattern for a cardigan with raglan sleeves that starts with the collar and is knit in one piece, where would I start the 8-stitch pattern? The collar is done in garter stitch and the sweater is knit in stockinette stitch.
And would it be difficult to put the 8-stitch pattern on the sleeve? I don’t know if I’m saying that correctly, but I’ve seen patterns that have the same decorative stitch that goes down the front, going along where the sleeve meets the sweater.
