Transition from Rib to Main Stitch
Hullo, can someone help please? My question is about rib stitch used for the edges for a top, and where the rib stitch (in smaller needles) meet with the "main" body stitch (in larger needles).
Because the Rib stitch is tighter than the main stitch, and I want the fabric to be flat (instead of elastically pulled in), I want to decrease the number of rib stitches to match the gauge of the main stitch. (Or the other way around, going from main stitch, increasing to match the rib gauge).
On which size needles does the number of stitches change? on the larger needles it pulls the main pattern out of shape. On the small needles I haven't tried it yet but I think it will make the rib look strange.
