I know we're currently voting on another project and all but I am a slow knitter and I am still working on the tree jacket and I ran into a problem.
Alright, so here's the deal.
I am on row 23 of the 24 rows that I am supposed to work before I separate the sleeves. Here's the problem.. At the beginning of row 23 I have 248 stitches. After I do my increases and then purl all the way around I will have 255 at row 24.
After I do my increases and then purl around I'll have 262 (at end of row 24).
Problem: I should have 272. Do I rip all the way back to the color for 10 stitches? I don't know how to adapt patterns very well so I can't alter the pattern and expect it to fit. Neither, sound pleasant. So I was wondering if there is a way to add 10 extra stitches without having a huge hole or making it noticeable?
Please help me! I really don't want to rip back!
