I just finished the back of my first sweater!!!! Its newborn size but I'm sure it's too small - but I'm gonna finish it anyway as its just a practice one really.
At the end of the pattern for the back it says:
Leave these sts on a stitch holder.
Because I haven't bound off yet the last stitch is quite loose so I'm worried that its all gonna unravel.
I need the rest of the ball to knit the rest of the sweater so I have to cut it off somewhere. If I just leave a long tail will it be OK?
Or is there something else I need to do to make it safe?
