Sweater neck is too small

Hi all…

I just finished my first sweater, sewed it all together and went to try it on… the neck is too small! a couple of inches I think… Is there any way to fix this??? Thanks…


I guess what I meant to say is that my head doesnt fit through the hole…

We knew what you meant… :wink:

You may have bound off too tightly. Redo it with larger needles and see if that helps.


I agree. You can pop out the bind off and either bind off with larger needles right away, or if the problem starts at the neck hole of the sweater itself, you can take out those rows and reknit. If you picked up stitches to make the collar, you’d just make a point to pick up more stitches this time.

Ok, I’ll try that! Thanks for your help!
