Knitting from the top
I am currently fascinated with the book Knitting from the Top by Barbara G. Walker. I am a novice knitter though and it is taking quite some brain power to figure out some of her techniques. Does anyone else have an interest in this?
Within pages 24-29 she discusses how to complete the underarm area when the raglans are long enough. She states at this point you can cast on stitches to increase the body width and/or sleeve area up to three inches.
How do you close up a huge underarm hole if you cast on up to three inches of stitches to one or the other?
What if you want to increase just the sleeve but not the body area?
Do you have to cast on the same number to both body and sleeve and then join together new stitch for new stitch?
