Help with edging!
I have had to ask a bunch of questions before because of this cardigan project I am almost done with.
I am making this thing.

I am trying to make the edge on it, around the neck and front, but can't for the life of me make it work.
It turns out too tight and pulls too much on the cardigan making it look very ugly.
I got suggestions from a fellow ravelry-er to use bigger sized needles making the ribbing, which I did. I have tried a seed stitch edge: got even worse. I use a bigger needles to bing off and still manage to get it too tight. Help! What should I do?? I got the suggestion to make an I-cord edge too, but I feel maybe it wouldn't look so good...

Can anyone give any suggestions for me on how to get a looser edge? It hangs/falls real nice without an edge, but needs one to look finished.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
