Help with shaker knit rib
I have started a child's shaker knit rib sweater. The sleeves of course have increases and it occurs to me that the ribbing will be thrown off. Is this right?

Are the increases under the arm?

Stay in the ribbing pattern even with the increases; read your stitches and work them as they appear instead of of starting with the written pattern.

thanks i'll try that....i've completed one sleeve and it's a bit off....so i'll try and stay with the stitches instead of the pattern.

the increases are as i work up from the wrist.......it gets generally wider to the underarm
