Reminiscent of a poor family planning. Steeking in hindsite, in my quick research on the net, people do unreinforced steeking but give themselves 7 stitches with which to cut between. I have 2 stitches, I knit my sweater in the round, despite the pattern design of knitting flat. The pattern is unusual in the short sleeves are just little add-ins on the side that are picked up and knit perpendicular to the rest of the sweater. So simple it threw me for a loop, and once I realised I either had to rip 4 inches or forge ahead and figure out the mysterious steek. I forged ahead.
After learning the continental method for knitting and pearling, I am quite amazed with the multitude of ways people can make a knit or purl stitch, so I am not giving up hope that I can find some way to have an unplanned unreinforced steek! The very least, I could pull out the sewing machine. Stay tuned!
I am plugging in the camera battery tonight, I have some pictures to share, our very first pattern designed for Knotty By Nature, and Habu has arrived!
