I did not want to share this just yet, but I am running out of ideas. I am working on a mod/drop sleeve double knit cardigan. The problem is: how to pickup stitches in double knit and maintain the color pattern.
What I would love to do is pickup the stitches on the fly (as each row is worked).
I have tried:
1. double working the edge stitches, once for the body, again for the pickup.
2. working edge stitches with 2 stands, transferring one loop to pickup needle.
3. a wrap/turn variation on the edge stitches. picking up and working wraps later. (this seems most effective, but how to wrap the 1st stitch in the row, any suggestions?)
Here are a couple of pictures to give you an idea
Don't you dare call this "doll clothes".
I'm a guy, this is a "scale model"
It does cover all the challenges I will face in the full size version (increases, decreases, maintaining color pattern when stitch count changes... etc)
Any advice appreciated,
