I guess it's not as daunting as knee surgery, but I'm worrying over whether to proceed, having never knit/sweater surgery before.
I'm knitting the Ursa sweater in Berroco Ultra Alpaca in a deep brown I love the yarn and the design but don't like the 4 rows of ribbing at the bottom of the back and fronts I completed. The pattern calls for 4 rows, but I think it should have been at least 8. I can tell it is going to roll up and bother me. Of course, I didn't figure this out before knitting the back and fronts, that would have been a good time to know.
So, I've read about knit surgery where you cut and unravel, then start knitting from the bottom of the sweater (this was knit bottom up) but it's a scary thought cutting into my knitting and I don't know how it will work with ribbing. I understand it works well with stockinette stitch. Anyways, I'm thinking I'll cut all the ribbing off, then start by knitting a few rows of stockinette, then the 8 rows of ribbing. Knitters, I could use advice and help if you have any!
