Hi I'm new and desparate.
I just found this forum while looking for ways to fix this sweater.
I'm just making up the Cable Pairing sweater from the Winter 1999 issue of Knitter's magazine. I know, that's a while ago.
I've made it for my husband. My knitting's a bit tight so I went up a size. But the k3 p2 type of ribbing, doesn't pull it in at the bottom. (I keep wanting to say jumper, not sweater - that's the Aussie terminology). It's not pulling in at the bottom, so it's just hanging there.
I altered it to be a vee neck. First time I've done such a thing, and it worked!
The sleeves are a little too long ... well I can take those off and pull back a couple of inches.
But the width in the body?
Can I sew it in narrower? Then I'll have these big seams. What do I do with those?
Sorry to launch in with a problem, but that's how I found you all.
Thanks in advance.
