donna Loomis/skilled knitters, please?
have a question for you. Short of using an overlock machine, is there a way to cut down knitting or crochet work, without ripping out? Debbie's done her first sweater (back, front, & 2 sleeves so far), and there's only a problem with the width of the back. THat must have been her first piece, and it's about 4 inches too wide.
Grandma used to do it. Cut right along with scissors, and tie off the ends. I can't help thinking there must be a little more to it than that! So I don't want any holes, but do want it to fit her well.
Someone asked me the above, and as I am not a knitter, I didn't know what to tell her, could someone respond to this plea of hers?
Be most grateful, both of us.
