Stockinette & Garter Sts
I am knitting a cardigan sweater. The front right and left sides call for mostly Stockinette and 7 sts of Garter right before reaching the center on both sides. I know that they will not come out even because the Garter sts looks tighter. The sweater is very long ....a coat sweater. Yarn is 100% wool. My question is will the fronts block even.......in other words can I stretch the Garter sts to match the Stockinette when blocking.

Thanks for the help!




Happy knitting......................:knitting:
