Design Flaw

When I was pregnant, I started a baby sweater of my own design. I used Knitting in the Old Way to get the percentages of when to decrease, and used “standard baby measurements” to get the size figured out.

Now that I have a model (underarms are not seamed and ends not woven in), I discovered that I made the ribbing WAY too small. I think the sweater itself is an OK size. So now my dilemma is how to fix it. I am thinking of cutting it and redoing the bottom and then grafting it onto the existing knitting. I’d hate to rip the whole thing out. Thoughts?

    I’d cut and graft. That makes the most sense to me!

    You can make it even easier by cutting, picking up the stitches, and knit the ribbing down, and cast of very loosely. I recommend moss stitch, and even to work the neckline back and forth with one buttonhole, since babies’s heads are so large compared to the rest, but perhaps that isn’t a problem!

    Ég mundi gera eins og Sigurlaug segir! Þetta verður fín peysa.
