My first attempt shows that I can do what I wanted and get the ribs on the angle. I’m going to knit up the back, over the shoulders and down the front in this sleeveless version.
This test had short rows so that the shoulder is straight and then moves onto the bias on the line that would generally be the raglan line. Increases along the seam edge keep the side seam vertical, then decreases form the bottom edge.
I’m feeling really confident about this project, looks like I will have a new top to wear this summer.
