Dare to Make It Knit-Along: An Easy Little Cardi, Part Fourcomments (3) December 18th, 2008
We’re in the home stretch this week and will be putting on the finishing touches. Picking up stitches along the front edges and fashioning buttonholes are made easy with the chunky yarn we are using. (If you need to catch up, see part one, part two, and part three.)
Before you begin picking up stitches, it’s a good idea to place markers to divide the sweater into sections. This will give you a guide for the number of stitches you need to pick up per section and will help you avoid mistakes as you are picking up. Place a stitch marker or a short length of scrap yarn at the following points: Count 53 (55, 55, 57) sts along right front, 30 (38, 46, 54) sts across tops of sleeves and back neck, and 53 (55, 55, 57) sts along left front—136 (148, 156, 168) sts. Once you have placed the markers, begin with RS facing using a size US 9 (5mm) needle and CC, pick up, and knit.
