Finishing neck treatment
I'm almost finished with my first 2T baby cardigan. It has turned out fabulous so far, but I don't like the way the pattern tells me to finish the neck. However, the directions do say to use whatever neck treatment that I want, and I know basically what I want to do, but I'm not having any luck finding neck finishing treatments online. Can someone help with a useful reference?

It depends on what it is you want to do. Can you link to an example or explain it?

Found possible solution
I think I've figured out how to get the neck line that I'm picturing. I tried one option last night and it looked great but was too tight and it rolled. So, I'm going to try something else and I will let everyone know if it works and how to do it.

Here's something that may work well for binding off the neck. This is Jenny's surprisingly stretchy magic cast off. I use this one a lot to bind off toe up socks. It will stretch a lot for your child to get it over his head easily.
