Hi, I too am new here. I hope this is the correct place to ask this question.
I want to convert a pattern so that the multicolored yarn will run vertically instead of horizontially. (I don't look well with strips around my middle) Do I have to find a pattern that is knit from the sleeves in or can I convert it from inches to stitches? I'm not even sure I've said this correctly to make it understandable. Please be patient.
Thanks for the reply. I'm probably trying to make this harder than it needs to be. I'm want to work from a cardigan pattern I presently have. Do I convert the number of inches I want for the length into my stitches per inch in order to know my cast on number? And do I work from the front to the side or side seam to the front?
A neat... but tedious... solution would be to actually sew the ends in with a regular sewing needle and thread. Depends on just how "anal" or obessive-compusive you are though, whether you'd want to do that! LOL!
