I'm finishing a set in sleeve pullover. I was hoping the shoulder seams would even out after blocking, but they still look crappy. I tried mattress stitch, kitcher stitch and ended up doing a 3-needle bind-off, even though I had already bound off. (Thank goodness for Amy's video's! I actually learned how to do these with the videos! She makes it so easy!)
Is there a better way? There seem to be holes where the cast offs switched and the seam is WAYYY too tight. I'm willing to take off the neckline stitches, sleeves and unknit/frog if I have to. I really want this sweater to turn out! I already have to take off the bottom and add some length (we'll see how that goes), but I want to get the shoulders to look good. I have to say, the yarn is looking a bit worn where I've worked it so much along the shoulder. I'm thinking taking it out and using new yarn would work.
Can someone please look at the pattern and tell me if I should have done this differently? I think the 3-needle BO would have looked better if the stitches hadn't already been bound off, but what about the various cast-offs and the holes between? Would it work to put the stitches on a holder instead of binding off? How do I eliminate the holes? Here's a link to the pattern:
THANKS SO MUCH!
