Connecting neckband pieces
Hi all! I have knitted up a nice vest, but the pattern called for a different approach to neckbands than I've done before, and now that it's all done I can't figure out how to assemble it.
I have rectangular pieces that extend up from the front button bands (one for each side of the vest of course). I can see how to sew the shoulder seams no problem, and the instructions then say "Sew center back seam on back neck band. Sew neck band along back neck" -- but it seems as though the bands are too long for the amount of "back neckline" to which I should attach it!
Since everything else is fitting, I figure I must not be seeing how this should come together. (I can't include a photo or link yet because I'm too new, but hope this explanation will help someone who's used this technique before.) Thank you!
