I knitted this using the same Knit Radar sheet I used for the last slashed neck jumper I made only this time instead of the tuck stitch panel I did some contrasting stripes. I wouldn’t have quite had enough pink wool to knit it all in pink so used some left over purple that I had for the stripes.
I do like these slashed necked jumpers as they are quick and easy to knit but they do tend to be bulky under the arms. Do you think I would be better off knitting them with a modified drop armhole?
This is Knitware’s schematic for a modified drop:
I’ve been knitting straight from the bottom to the top then joining the shoulders, hanging it back onto the machine to knit the sleeves from the top to the cuff, starting the shaping straight away.
Do you think the modified drop would reduce the bulk under the arms?
I know I could do them with a set in sleeve but I don’t really want them to be as fitted as that.
What do you think?
Talk to you later,
