Good afternoon everyone! I have two more newbie questions.
I’m (finally) finishing off my first knit vest, but I’ve run into a bit of a problem. The pattern says to sew the right shoulder together and then “pick up 145 sts along neckline and work in K1P1Rib for 8 rows. BO all sts in pattern.” Then “Sew neck band and left shoulder seam.”
My question is, 145 sts is all the way around the neckline, so why do I need to sew the neckband? If I’ve picked up the sts from the neckline and then done the ribbing, isn’t the ribbing already attached?
Question 2. Since I’m picking up sts all the way around the neckline (and the same for the arms), am I really knitting this in the round?
