Okay, so I took apart thissweater b/c it was too short from the bust up. I've got it lengthened and put back together, but I need help with the V-neck trim. All the other sweaters of this pattern on Ravelry look like mine did the first time. Crappy at the V and somewhat too tight at the neck.
Here are the instructions:
[FONT=Verdana]Sew right shoulder seam. (Oops. I already did BOTH shoulder seams with 3 needleBO.)
[FONT=Verdana]Beginning at left front shoulder, with [COLOR=Purple]smaller circular needle[/COLOR], black yarn, and RS facing, pick up and knit [COLOR=Purple]3 sts for every 4 rows[/COLOR] along the front neckline, [COLOR=Purple]1 held st from safety pin, 3 sts for every 4 rows[/COLOR] along other side of front neckline, and [COLOR=Purple]1 st for every cast off st along back neckline[/COLOR]. Do not join. K 1 row. Next row: K to 1 st before center front, sl 1, k2tog, psso, k to end. K 1 row. Cast off all sts.[/FONT]
So here's what I'm thinking: The whole top is knit on size 6, and the pattern says to use size 4 for the neck. That's fine, since it will match the bottom and cuffs, but then to ALSO knit 3 sts for every 4 rows, I'm thinking is making it too tight, right? Instead, knit pick up one stitch for each stitch? Would that work?:??
Next, Since I already closed both shoulders, what do I do?:shrug:
And what about the V? There's one stitch on a holder, but that's the spot where it looked really crappy the first time (or two:aww:)
