Hi all, I have done some forum searches and, although there are several threads discussing reverse shaping, I have not found any about whether or not a sweater knit entirely in garter stitch needs any reverse shaping.
Here is the pattern I am using:
My question is:
Even though the pattern calls for reverse shaping for the Right Front, the entire sweater is knit in garter stitch, which is exactly the same on both sides. Is there any reason why reverse shaping might be needed for the Right Front? It seems that all that is necessary to create a mirror image is to turn one of the front pieces over. Both sides of the front pieces should look exactly the same, right?
Thank you for your help!
