Border options for sweaters

I am knitting a sweater from the top down and was wondering on suggestions for bottom border options. I was just going to use the K2, P2 rib, but wanted more suggestions.



You can use ribbing of various sizes, a garter band, seed stitch, cables or even a lacey edge.

Keep in mind that that the ribbing is the only one that will pull in and be stretchy. If you want ribbing, but not the traditional 1x1 or 2x2 you can change it up… k3p1, k5p2, or whatever. 1x1 and 2x2 are the stretchiest I’ve heard though I’ve not tried the other combos for effect.

You can also mix it up with a combo of a couple edges. :thumbsup:
