  • E mail Question from customer.
    Help! I just finished Section A of the Abberly Sleep Sack. I am confused about starting Section B.

    The pattern says that the sleep sack is knitted all in one piece, but how can knitting the short rows next for Section B make the curve reversed for the front?

    Can you please clarify for me?. . .I’m really stuck!

  • Morning xxx,

    I hope this will help with your concerns.

    It is knitted in one piece, the rs purl line at the end of section A gives you a fold line along the bottom of the sack.

    The short rows push down the middle of the row to form the curve, repeating the way you formed the curve on the front for the back may seem odd but it dose work.

    Be brave, give it a go, it will work.

    Hope this helps, get back to me if you have any other issue.
