Yes, will match cuffs
to the hemline border, but instead of a US10, I'll use a
US8 or US9. Will swatch with both. Don't want sloppy cuffs.
Prolly a 2x2 rib from the pick-up row up to maybe an inch...then polish it off with a teensy st st rolled edge. Not a true rolled neck...just a topper.
At least, that's the "plan". That can change.
I'm very fussy about a neckline. It is so 'visible'.
The pattern says to knit the FRONT and BACK as identical pieces...but I don't want my front neckline to choke up on my throat so much...so I will execute the neckline shaping about 1.5" sooner than I do for the back neckline. This will allow some room for my neck to breath!
I might even do a crab stitch around the neckline...keeping it real simple.
I'll have fun tinkering around with it.
Another modification OPTION for the Front Piece: creating a "slit" in the upper portion.
After the armhole bindoffs, each side of the "slit" were simply knit separately,
on separate balls of yarn.
