This is probably a stupid question, I have a V-neck simple pullover that has 2 1/2" ribbing which is K2 P2 that I would like it shorter. Due to time issues for a upcoming trip I cannot take it apart and start over. The other choice is to leave it at home.
I really like the new forum, I wish many of the posters were my neighbors.
I'm assuming you want to shorten just the ribbing right? First question: Was this pullover knit from the bottom up or top down?
If knit from the top down - simply snip a thread in the bindoff edge and unravel to your desired length. Carefully pick up the live stitches with a much smaller needle size than was used to knit the ribbing originally and with sharp points. Knit one row of your ribbing (2x2) then bind off as usual.
If knit from the bottom up - requires surgery:
I've done this surgery many times both to lengthen and shorten - usually sleeves. Hope this helps!
WOW!!! It really worked Thank you very much.
