"Why doesnt' this sweater have a 'V' neck since that is what it always wants to do?" I began to think of Sitcom in a new and improved 'V' neck style. I could have re-knit the sweater to accomplish this, but instead simply turned under, as facing, the excess fabric to create the new neckline. I'm all about the easy.
With the new 'V' neck in place, I then put new button bands on the sweater. Tired of the curling edges - another annoying feature of Sitcom - I worked several rows of 2x2 ribbing, followed by one knit row before the cast off. Take that you curling edges.
And thinking the back neck would be too high if I added an inch of trim, I undid the back-neck cast off, with it's tight stitches, and stitched down a scallop of facing there as well.
It needs washing to complete the spring makeover. Then, I intend to get much more, or at least much more comfortable, wear out of this work horse cardi.
