I'm finally to the point of doing the neck shaping on a sweater but I'm confused about where to attach the 2nd ball of yarn. I know that once I bind off, I have to work the 2 sides separate from then on. Do it attach it before I start binding off and use it to do the bind off or do I start the 2nd ball when I get back to the other side. I've tried reading several patterns to hopefully figure it out but it hasn't helped. I'd really appreciate any ideas!!
Hi--I'm making my first sweater (tank style) & have some questions for all you experienced knitters!! First, can I block some "shape" into yarn that is 50 cotton/50 acrylic? It is a little too short and a little too wide--not much but I wondered if I could block some length into it and take out the extra width at the same time. Any thoughts?
Second--my biggest problem is the arm shaping looks terrible. The pattern says to bind off stitches on 2 rows then bind off more on the next 2 rows. I keep getting a gap in between the 2 bind off places (because of knitting to the end of the row, if that make any sense at all!!). What am I doing wrong?? This yarn is pretty thick and it is leaving a big hole! Thanks for any help!!!
I'm a total knitting newbie but I want to branch out from making scarves and try making a tank top to increase my skills (and so hopefully I can finish it by summer!!). Does anyone know of one or where to look? Thanks!
I'm new to knitting and want to make a scarf with stripes along the long end, if that makes sense. I assume you must cast on with more than one color or do you cast on the long edge and then change colors as usual. I may not be making sense--let me know if I need to clarify!! Thanks for any help!!
