I'm fixing to turn a pullover into a cardigan and will have to cut down the front center. I had planned to machine stitch on both sides as most instructions state and then cover the cut edge with ribbon also. I had thought that I would sew the ribbon down but I too will most likely hand stitch it.
I want to know if you MS your edges are did you use the crochet method and then cut down center?
Did you work bottonholes?
