Difficulty Sewing on the front bands
The front side of the cardigan pattern instructions states that I rib 8 stitches, then hold those stitches on a safety pin. Continue to finish the sweater - then apply the front band as follows: "...cast on 1 stitch, rib across 8 stitches on safety pin (total 9 stitches). Stretch & sew the band in place."
Question - what method of sewing stitch should I use to sew the band?
Is the extra stitch on the band supposed to compensate for the loss of a stitch when I seam the band to the front side?
I cannot imagine that this will look good without the advice of an experienced knitter.

I've never done that, but maybe this will help till someone comes along who can help.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
