I'm no expert, of course, but here's my thoughts on it:
- I think if you're doing short rows, there usually has to be something to fit in them (a shoulder, the bust line, a tummy, a hip, etc.), so it wouldn't sag unless you've put them where there's nothing to fill them.
- You'd need to keep track of what you did on one side to make sure you can replicate it exactly on the other side.
- I'd think it would depend on the stitch as to whether it would show.
- Swatching it would be a good idea.
OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.
Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
