Which direction for incs on top down?
When working side incs on cardi, top down, where there's no side seam, should my INCREASES angle

TOP
\ /
\ /
BOTTOM (if there were a seam these would essentially follow the angle of the edge)

or

TOP
/ \
/ \
BOTTOM (these basically follow the line of the garment as it widens)

Best to leave a couple sts in between the incs?

I would think the second option would be right.

I'm not sure. I think I have seen it done with one stitch between the increases, so it would be, /l\. Or just right next to each other with no stitch between. /\

Thanks, Merigold. I was leaning toward the second because it seems visually right but it feels counter-intuitive to how they'd appear if done bottom up. I may test out the one/none st between to see which looks better altho the difference would be minimal.
