I am just completing the sweater I have written about previously and I am at the finished edge of the back neck. The sweater is a low wide v-neck with cables throughout. The pattern suggests a “crab stitch” but I am wondering if there may be a more “elegant” stitch or edge I could use. I noticed that the back neck needs some tightening as the shoulders do not stay on so whatever I do it will need to tighten the neck.
I did try using a piece of yarn and picked up stitches along the edge then knit a row and bound off. It was very puckered and so loose that the shoulders did not stay on.
Thank you for any advice you may offer!
