I made go go garter scarves for my neices this past Christmas. I used multiple strands to get the varigated effect.



Here's my version of the skully sweater. My husband wanted it plain and a bit longer. This is my first sweater.

I like that sweater. I don't know what my problem is but my sweaters keep turning out tight in the armpit area.

You know my armpits came out really tight as well. So tight he could barely put the sweater on. I could have frogged the arms but didn't want to so I knit some triangles then sewed them in.

First I detacthed the arms. Then I knitted up four triangles total. I sewed on the arms but left the bottom seam open, sewed on one triangle on each side, then sewed up the bottom seam. I've made a little diagram, hope it makes sense. Smiley

Ok I thought I was doing something wrong. Perhaps if I cast on a few extra sts to begin with and decrease them gradually until its back to the original amount needed. The less sewing I have to do the better.

you both should really check out Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmerman.  she is the sweater goddess.  she has moved me entirely away from all sweater problems.
