I've been faithfully working on my WIPs and have really enjoyed knitting my Mothed Pullover. When I finished knitting the body portion, I breathed a sigh of relief as the sizing looked great. I put the live arm hole stitches back on my needle to begin knitting the sleeves and after the first round, I saw this!
I was not happy. This happens to me sometimes -- I choose a pattern, knit happily along, but then come across an issue that isn't addressed in the instructions. I wish all designers would include little hints and tips that would help make the FO more polished, but I suppose I'll know these little tips myself as I gain more experience.
Luckily, I came across this great tutorial for the exact problem I was having. I'm a follower of Stacey's and love how clear and simple her video tutorials are.
After one viewing, I was able to frog back and close that gap! Simple, clear, to the point.
The pullover is designed to have long sleeves; in fact, the mothed part of the pullover's design is in the sleeves, but as I knitted this during the spring, I decided to keep the sleeves short. A happy FO, indeed!
