Does anyone know the answer to the above question? I will explain a bit more: I am knitting a seamless wrap cardigan, so the additional shaping will have to be at the front sides of the cardigan, as those are the only sides. Will this not make the fronts slope a bit? If so, is there another way to increase ribs in pattern that will be less noticeable?
