Britty, I usually pick up and knit each stitch as I go like this
I'm making Drops #101-23 with MANY modifications. I've made it before: here's a link to my Ravelry page
on it, but I wasn't happy with the pickups at the neck and sleeves.
ETA: That's the step I'm on: Picking up for the neck and sleeves.
Thanks SO much for your help!
