Decreases in neckline
I hate them I just can't seem to get them to look right.I have 3 sweaters done up to neckline and just can't get them right .I can't believe I can do a whole cable sweater and when it comes to the neckline decreases I just can't get it right.Does anyone else have this problem?I guess I'm just gonna have to break down and go for visual help at my yarn shop.I feel soooooooooo stupid.

The decreases always look funky until I add the collar. What's the problem you're having?

Looks normal to me. :thinking: I think you'll like it better when you add the edging.

Hi Lieke

Well, 'this moment' doesn't last forever - but in Julie's case, who knows?
