Is it possible to correct this with a 'vertical fix'?
I'm wondering if the following repair is possible:
I am making a raglan sweater (knit flat--not in the round). I finished the back (luckily it is the back). When I did the neck decreases, I did the SSK's wrong. I slipped them purlwise, which ending up making them a "knit 2 tog through the back." (While I was doing them, I kept thinking "hmmmm, how is this any different from knitting them together through the back." LOL!"
The result is a sloppy zig zagging decrease that isn't a nice match for the ktogs.
I don't plan to fix it. It is the backside of a kid's sweater. It will get stretched a bit when the sweater is assembled. This is my first sweater, so it will have lots of other mistakes as well.
But I am curious about it. Would it be possible to do a vertical fix for this? You know, climb down the ole ladder, undo the incorrect decrease, and then fix it. Do that...uh...13 times. Would that work? Sometimes vertical fixes are possible, and sometimes (for reasons I am not clear on) they are not possible. Which type of situation is this?
