Thank you for replying to this question. The patterns that I am working on are Spray and Aqua. Both patterns are in Kim Hargreaves "Echoes."
I prefer to use the three needle bind off on most shoulders which I may do on the Aqua since it is not completed or
I could possibly make adjustments to the pattern, in adding a row or two of stockinette as you suggested (thanks for that suggestion), when I get to that portion of the pattern. The side seams and sleeves still have me puzzled. It appears to me now, as though I should have added two edge stitches to the sleeves and side seams, so that I could have stitched into them.
The Spray sweater pattern is completed except for assembly and I don't see anyway of adding rows to this since the back neck extension is included in knitting the shoulder. I am not certain how, but maybe rip out the entire shoulder and redo where the extension is added.
It is beginning to look as though I could rip both sweaters, which I am hesitant to do, as this is tape yarn and it would be difficult to get the same gauge or finished product.
