Help please! Yoked sweater help needed
Hi Everyone,

I am an intermediate knitter and I'm working on completing my first yoked cardigan for a little girl. I joined the underarm seams last night, but there are some huge holes where the back and underarms meet, how can I fix this? I can take some pictures if that helps... This is my first time doing this type of sweater, I guess that I didn't use enough tension when I was knitting these areas...

Help please! Thanks!

Usually you can tighten up on yarn ends to help close up any holes at the underarms. You can also continue the underarm seam to close the holes, either weave in sts to close the gap or actually turn the sweater inside out and seam over the gap.
