I'm trying to work this freebie-pattern sweater from Cascade Yarns:
I'm using Berroco Weekend yarn with #9 needles to get gauge.
The top yoke is worked back and forth until you get to where you have to cast on 20 stitches for the front neckline and then joined at the underarm to work in the round. You later pick up stitches for ribbing around the neck. Before joining in the round, the pattern says to kfb in the first and last stitch to shape the neck edge. I understand the pattern fine but end up with large holes next to the kfb increases, especially in the row where I have to cast on for the neckline.
Would it be better to kfb in the second stitch and next-to-last stitch of each row? I'm afraid it will be difficult to hide or work in the holes when I pick up stitches for the neck edge, which is what the gal at the LYS suggested when I went there for advice.
I've ripped this back twice now, re-working it once again, and would sure like to be able to get going on it again. Any advice or suggestions?
