I am knitting the Evening in the Village turtleneck by Two of Wands.
When I was knitting the arms, I made a big mistake and decided to push on instead of frogging. The pattern tells you to knit in pattern for 6 cm and then decrease on both ends of a RS row every 8 rows…well, I thought it said decrease on both ends of every RS row…So for 12 rows thats what I did. until I caught myself. I had unfortunately rapidly decreased. And instead of fixing my mistake, I thought well I don’t like big sleeves anyway…so instead I knitted 48 rows with no decreases. Essentially, I got to the length I should be at given the number of stiches I had left. I then decreased on each end of a RS row every four rows (bc again, I don’t like big sleeves) until I got to the number of total stitches left I should have.
I lightly blocked my pieces and then seamed up my arm. When I put it on…I realized some unfortunate extra fabric at my armpit. It’s puckering at the part where we knit in pattern for 6 cm, which is then followed by the rapid decreases.
Is it puckering because of my rapid decreases? Or because I seamed it incorrectly?
What do you think is a reasonable way to fix it? Should I frog the sleeves and redo them correctly this time? Re-seam? Steek?
