Here is the beginning of my sweater. I had sworn off knitting sweaters, due to the time, effort and money that was wasted when they didn't fit....which was most every time. The Hadley was so pretty that I just had to have it, so here we go!
I do have a few questions about the waist shaping, and other things. Maybe someone can help me....I have seen several posts about this topic, but there was not enough detail to figure out how to implement.
I am knitting the 4th size (the 3rd one inside the parentheses).
I started under the BODY section, did the ribbing, and am now in the body.
The pattern seemed a little lacking in detail, as It isn’t clear when to start/do the decrease row. How much of the body should you knit before doing the Decrease row? I'm hoping for a simple and clear way to do less shaping in the waist. I am fairly straight, and am in no way, an hourglass shape.
Measurements and I don't get along, but I am great at following directions. Do you think that 5 inches is the right amount of body to knit, and then do the decrease row? Or how should I figure that out? Anyone who can help, advise, etc, is VERY APPRECIATED. Thank you!
