How do I increase in Fair Isle Knitting
(Florence, SC, USA)
Top Down Alpaca Cardigan Pattern
sample knit top down cardigan
I am working on the Top Down Alpaca Cardigan, a discontinued Bernat Pattern. The charted pattern has a 12-stitch repeat done over 29 rows to create the yoke of the sweater. It is a raglan. My confusion is that the increases in the yoke fall within the pattern and I cannot get the pattern to line up as a result of this. I have spoken with someone at Yarnspirations and she saw the same issue and suggested just making sure that I keep the proper number of stitches of each color in the pattern. It's not working out. As soon as I do the required M1 it throws the pattern off.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. This is supposed to be a Christmas present.
