Comments to Hemstitch sleeve blouse

  • Hello, I started knitting this blouse, I really like it a lot, but I am confused about instructions for knitting the shoulder line and the neckline. When you say to close in every 2nd row 5×4 stitches, does that mean that I should close 5 stitches in every 2nd row for 4 rows, or 4 stitches in every 2nd row for 5 rows? So, which of the two numbers stand for the number of stitches and which for the number of rows? I hope that you can understand my question, I am really new to knitting, and this is my first big project.

    Also, when you say to ”close those 4(4)5 remaining stitches for the shoulder”, does that mean that on both sides I should have only 5 stitches left, after all the shaping?

    I would really appreciate it if you could answer my questions. Thank you very much in advance, and thank you for the wonderful pattern.

  • Hi! I'm glad that my website is helpful to you. I'll try to answer your questions.
    1. For knitting the shoulder line and neckline you must bind off in every second row 5×4 stitches. Every second row means the row on the right side, so you must bind off, 4 stitches each on both sides as follows: in the second row = 8 stitches bind off (4 stitches at the beginning of the row and 4 stitches at the end of the row), in the fourth row – 8 stitches, in the sixth row = 8 stitches, in the eighth row = 8 stitches, in the tenth row = 8 stitches.
    2. Yes, you should have 5 stitches left each shoulder, after all the shaping.
    If you have any questions I will be happy to help you. Sorry for my English. Have a nice day!
