I have finished a sweater that is a mock turtleneck with a single cable up the front. The first attempt at the neckline was too tight, so I ripped back a bit and added some stitches and bound off again. Now I don't like how it looks, and the wool is quite itchy, so I'm thinking i'll make it into a crew neck or something similar.
The neck shaping was worked on the front and back, mirror shaping, after the shoulders were bound off, with the same number of stitches front and back. The neck was originally meant to roll down.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might convert this to a lower neck line? Would you just rip back to the shoulder bind off and do a rib to match sleeves and bottom? Thanks for your help! I'll attach a pic, but it doesn't show the neck all that well.
(Please forgive the outfit, I had just come from a yoga class and decided to take a pic right away, don't know why I couldn't wait until I changed. The sweater is meant to be slightly cropped and worn with jeans.)
