BOTTOM-UP: When knitting a sweater from the bottom up, you begin by knitting the bottom of the body (which is often the ribs), and then you work your way up, row by row (or round by round), until you reach the underarms. It is now time to make the holes for the sleeves, and from here on out, the remaining steps will be determined by the type of garment you are knitting.
How do you keep the edge of a sweater from curling?
Continue working in a ribbing of knit one, purl one until the sweater measures two inches from the edge where it was cast on. Because of the ribbing, the edge won’t be able to curl up at the very bottom. Carry out the stockinette stitch for a distance of two inches or until the required length is reached.
How do you bind off underarm stitches on a sweater?
- The yarn should then be cut, and the end should be woven in on the wrong side of the sweater.
- First, thread the stitches for the underarm onto one double-point needle, and then thread the threads for the body of the underarm onto another double-point needle.
- To complete the underarm closure, the sweater should be turned inside out before the stitches are bound off using the three-needle bind off technique.
