I'm Mar51Day aka Marilyn Dayen, I live in Ephrata WA USA. I took up knitting when I quit smoking, and now I'm addicted to that instead. I'm trying to knit a pull-over crew-neck sweater for my husband. I'm having a difficult start. I don't know why, because I've knitted sweaters for me with no problem. Must be a mental block or something.
My question(s) is/are: The largest chest size for men that I see is 44". My husband is 6' tall, and has a size 47-1/2" chest.
1)I've figured out how to add inches for the chest measurement, but do I need to adjust the increase stitches also?
2) And when it comes to knitting the raglan sleeve and crew neck, are there adjustments necessary for that? If so, how do make those adjustments?
(Sorry this is so long, I don't know how to abbreviate yet
I really like this website it's ingenious. Thank you in advance.
