Have a crochet question
I have almost finish ThisSummerSweater. I am about to frog or see if the crocheting the edges will help.

The very last thing I need to do is the crocheting edges.Right now my Sweater is falling off of me. I don 't know if doing the edgeing will help.

Question: The pattern say to :
Neck edge With RS facing, join yarn with a sl st at shoulder seam. Using crochet hook, work evenly around neck edge: 1 rnd of 124 sc (working from right to left), then 1 rnd of rsc (working from left to right). Fasten off.

I have not counted but I know I have MORE the 124 sc going all the way around. So when I pick up a sc,, I don 't go into every sc but maybe every 3 or 4 sc.. That will bring IN the biggness of this sweater.

How about a sc DECREASE~ that would probably help with the saggyness. I can't explain it very well but its REALLY EASY.. go to nexstitch.com or crochetville. org for free video~!

What I get from the directions is that you should only pick up 124 stitches around. This will make a sort of gathered neck opening, then rsc to give it more stability.

Your sweater looks so much bigger than the picture in the pattern. I saw that it has only one size -- one-size-fits-all is usually too big! I was thinking that I would like to knit the sweater, but I am sure it would be too big for me. Thanks for sharing your experience. I love the microspun yarn.

What about shortening the shoulder straps? Those look quite long. If the armhole is deep enough, shorter straps would make the Neck a lot higher and smaller.

Also to help space out the 124 sc sts, divide the neck into sections of length, like quarters for example and have 1 quarter of your sts
(31 sts) in each section.
