I am almost finished with this sweater but have run into a "snag". I am working in the round and my row marker is in the middle or between the leg holes. Next in the patter it wants me to cast off 22% of my stitches for the belly and then continue working for the back section of the sweater. The only problem is my row starts right in the middle of the belly stitches. How can I cast them off? If I cast off 1/2 at the beginning, work around and cast off the other 1/2 at the end...I will end up with a loop right in the middle with a gap on either side of the one loop. I then thought maybe I should put the first stitches to be cast off on a stitch holder, work around and cast them all off together...but then I would have a long string coming from the center over to my new first stitch. I don't know. Please Help!!!
I have contacted Esther...I was just hoping I would get a quicker response here.
