Hi! I finished about a month ago Starsky Jr from Knitty.com for my
little girl that has a shawl collar that sounds very similar to what you
are knitting. It utilized the wrap and turn method and had you pick
up the wrap and knit it together with teh stitch when you passed
over it. I did it that way and had no holes or gaps. You said you
tried the wrap and turn method, I was just wondering did you
remember to pick up the wraps on the way back?
Just a thought!
