View Full Version : Help with shaker knit rib

I have started a child's shaker knit rib sweater. The sleeves of course have increases and it occurs to me that the ribbing will be thrown off. Is this right?:knitting:

Are the increases under the arm?

Stay in the ribbing pattern even with the increases; read your stitches and work them as they appear instead of of starting with the written pattern.

thanks i'll try that....i've completed one sleeve and it's a bit off....so i'll try and stay with the stitches instead of the pattern.

the increases are as i work up from the wrist.......it gets generally wider to the underarm
