Who Knew?

Who knew that when I remodeled my kitched three years ago, that my lowered marble baking area would someday also be used for the perfect blocking area! I'm getting closer, but have a question about "picking up stitches" on the fronts. I know there are more than 91 stiches/rows up the front, how do I do this? Here's the back and two fronts.

You might try starting with two "pickups" for every 3 rows, and see if you need to adjust from there.

Nice marble tile blocking board! :) Funny how these things work out...

I hope this helps. I picked up every four stitches along the fronts for the size I knit.

If you pick up every stitch, the fronts will pucker and look funny.

I believe Bonne Marie has instructions how to do the actual pick up of stitches.

Good Luck

this book is great for learning how to pick up stitches, sew your sweater together, make button holes... etc. She suggests picking up 3 out of every 4 stitches for a smooth band and it's worked well for me
