help with consistent cast on and cast off

321 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  mama2xan
I am finishing up the Haiku sweater and ran into some problems when seaming on the first sleeve.
The way the sweater is knit results in bound off stitches along the front armhole and cast on stitches along the back armhole. On my sweater this resulted in a very loose edge in the front and a very tight one w/ clearly visible "v's" in the back.
Are there certain cast ons/off that match each other so that the edges look the same when completed?
I had a hard time seaming up the sweater b/c I felt like I was stitching things up one way in the front and another in the back. After a few attempts I did manage to get the sleeve sewn on w/o it looking too awful.
How can I avoid this in the future?
