Is there a certain bind off method I should use for the neck of my sweater so it isn't so tight?
The sewn method is a good one that isn't tight.http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/FEATsum06TT.html
Using a needle 1-2 sizes larger then you were knitting with is another often used method.
There are several you can use including just using a needle size or two larger. Here's a link to check out. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/FEATsum06TT.html
OR-I LOVE this bind off and it's super stretchy. Not everyone likes the way it looks though. http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall09/FEATjssbo.phphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abBhe-JYmgI&feature=channel
