|23: Working the Neck
Band of a Sweater (cont.)
A neckband knitted separately, and then
stitched to the neck edge should follow the same principles of
joining. Match row to row along each side of the neck. Join three
horizontal stitches on the centre front and back neck to three rows
of the band, and then skip every fourth row. If the slant of the
shapings at each side of the neck is sharp, skip rows on the band at
even intervals [pic 16,17).

ratio across front and back, and change ratio for the shaping area.

A V neck has two edges, the horizontal
stitches across the back of the neck and the diagonal sides of the
neck, which slant at different angles depending on the number of
rows between shapings. The rows on these edges are longer in height
than the rows of a right angle edge [pic 18,19].

are longer than the right angle stitches.
