I have knitted a sweater for my son, finally finished all the pieces and began today stitching them together.
The directions were: "Sew left shoulder seam. Pick up and knit 42 stitches around the neck, knit five rows." Okay, so I did that, made sure I had exactly the number of stitches that it said to have.
Then it said, "Sew right shoulder seam and neck." I did that. Then I decided to try it on my son before sewing the sleeves on. It's too small...there is absolutely no way I get the neck over his head. Otherwise, the pieces are the right size for him.
What do I need to do? Right now, I have stuck all the pieces in a bag and don't want to look at them. What is the simplest way to enlarge the neck opening?
