I made an adorable puppy sweater (my first ever knitting!), but the circular needles were huge! I had to make a small sweater for a 2 lb. pup. My question is - there were about 96 stiches for the edge ribbing, that I put on US 7 circular needles. Is there a better way to do this? The ribbing ended up looking like "skirting!" It was flared out, rather than pulled the edge of the sweater in like it should have.
