Picking up syitches from a holder - shows in garment
I have a pattern for a top down sweater, stockinette stitch, knit in the round. After the yoke, you move the sleeves stitches to a holder or a piece of yarn (I put them on yarn). Knitting the sleeves requires picking up some stitches from underarm and stitches from yarn, then more stitches from underarm. I did a 'pick up and knit' for the underarm, then knitted the stitches off the yarn and 'pick up and knit' on the other side. Garment is finished and this line is visible. At first I thought the stitches were just stretched, but have blocked and steamed with some improvement but not completely gone. I took care to be sure the stitches were not twisted. Knitting in the round I cannot tell the rows apart as in straight needle stitching. I am wondering if this somehow caused me a problem. Any clues for me?
