I am making this sweater and am wanting to put a picot edging on the bottom and the sleeves, as well as a picot edged collar.
Now i am not having a prob with the bottom or the sleeves, but i am having difficulty with how high to make the collar before starting the picot edge so that the collar will lie down nicely. The pattern calls for the last buttonhole to be made and then to knit the next row and 6 more rows to make the garter stitch edge. Would I be able to knit the 7 rows in st st and then make the picot edge? Also, would it look ok with the garter stitch on the sides of the cardi or shouldi use another stitch?
