Yes, just pick up along the bottom. If you want to add ribbing, it will look like it was originally part of the sweater. If you want to add in st st, then there might be a line, but not too bad, just noticeable. You could use a different color and that would alleviate that problem, too.

I was worried about the line from picking up the stches and adding a little more but it actually solved my problem of the bottom roll rolling up too much it won't go past the line
