Help with neck opening
I was just finishing up the Berry Shirt, and decided to try it on my daughter...and her head doesn't fit. Grrr. This often happens, and I made the opening bigger than called for in the pattern. It said to decrease to 60, do 2 rounds of garter st and BO, but I only decreased to 68 - decrease of 8 per decrease round.

I'm going back to a st count of 76 and am just wondering if I should add more rounds of garter st to make up the height, or if it will look strange. I'm also toying with the idea of decreasing to 68 or 60, but NOT knitting in the round...go back and forth from the 76 st round and leave a little gap on the side??
