Neckband cast off too tight
I have cast off a neckband of a sweater using a size bigger than the called for needles so that the neck would have a little give and not be too tight. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. I have tried using different size needles (bigger and smaller) and I'm having no luck. The pattern called for a size 5 16" circular needle. I would call myself and intermediate/experienced knitter and have never encountered this problem. Any suggestions? Thanks!
