Neck Edge?
I always get this confused - which is the neck edge? I know this sounds really dumb but i've done this wrong before and i'm getting on so well so far I really don't want to stuff it up and end up pulling it out!

Just as an extra - if i'd known you were here before I would have been knitting years ago! I swear when i'm able to answer other people's questions I will because i'd have never got this far without your help!

I'm guessing you're making something like a cardigan? If so, the "neck edge" is the side that will be in the center, under the neck, when worn - as opposed to the arm, or sleeve, edge, that will be on the side around the arm when worn.
Isn't this the best place ever!!!

Thanks, thought that would make sense, but as i've discovered knitting terms aren't always logical!

Completed the back of my first ever adult sized jumper and now heading up the front with a great feeling of pride! Wouldn't have even started without everyone's help tho!
