I have attempted a rather ambitious project to knit my daughter a jumper for Christmas and have got stuck! ( fortunately she is old enough to appreciate that she will get it one day, just not Christmas Day!!)
I am attempting to do a yoke on circular needles that has a vertical rib pattern and on my first attempt the pattern was different on both sides of the front and back that joined the raglan sleeves.
The pattern reads - With RS (purl side is right side) facing using 51/2 mm long circular needle, slip 43 sts from top of left sleeve, 21 sts from left front, 20 sts from front, 21 sts from right front, 43 sts from right sleeve and 62 sts from back (210 sts). Working in rounds cont as follows -
Next round - *P2tog, P33 rep from* to end (204 sts)
Next round - *S1, K1, psso, P2 (K3,P3) 5 times, K3,P2, K2tog, K1,sl 1, K1, psso, P2, (K3, P3) 8 times, K3, P2, K2tog, K1, rep from * once more (196 sts)
Cont as set work 1 round
Dec 8 sts on next and 16 following alt rounds (60 sts)
Please can anyone offer me some advice? Does the RS(purl) need to be on the outside or inside when knitting rounds? Where should I be starting from to make sure the pattern matches up between the front/back and arms?
Any help much appreciated
