Thanks everyone I keep meaning to ask some one do you cast off the same way in circular knitting as flat knitting I have been but it doesn't look quite right ?

That's the only way I cast off. You can use your tail to connect the last stitch to the first stitch.

Very pretty. Plymouth yarns are one of my favorites.

Your question about binding off made me wonder if that sweater was worked form the top down.

If you were purling at the end, did you bind off purling?
Can't tell from the picture. It looks perfect.

It was worked from the neck down.

It was worked from the neck down.

I'm not quiet sure what...... "doesn't look quite right".
Do you mean the last row, or the last stitch. :??

If you cast off the last row with knitting, as opposed to purling,
that wouldn't "look quite right". :shifty:

I did cast off knitting but it is only the last stitch that doesn't look right.
