Has anyone bit into this pattern yet? It is in Loop-d-Loop. I am getting ready to shape the second shoulder and am plain stumped.
I just started shaping the armholes to a vest and ran into a similar dilemma. The pattern called for decreasing only on the right side...7 stitches...that just didn't make sense to me. After re-reading, and finding a forum by Googling it, I found that I decrease it by 7 stitches at the beginning of the rows on the right side, and also decreasing 7 stitches at the end of the row. Then I continue decreasing 1 stitch each end of each row. Might yours be something as simple as that? I tried to find a forum for your pattern, but couldn't. I'm a novice at this as well, so I'm sorry if I got your hopes up.
Thank you. The pattern is from Teva Durham and the book is Loop-d-loop. Pg 91: Shape Right Shoulder as for front, and at same time, continue to decrease at raglan edge every 4th row 3 more times - 50 sts. Place remaining sts on holder for neck. My dilema is wondering if I am to refer to the directions for Shaping the initial Raglan (following those instructions ), or simply ignore the voices and proceed with the shaping. The piece looks a bit odd in the front and for my first adult sized sweater it feels funky doing this. Any assistance is appreciated.
Can you share with us where your dilemma lies? Perhaps provide the pattern too.
