    Hi there, I am just getting ready to start on the neckline and I realized that I didn’t do a provisional cast on. For some reason, I skipped right over that word and just did a long tail cast on. Do you have suggestions? I really don’t want to tear it all out and start over!!

    I am knitting the love notes and I am having trouble with the neckline.
    I’m knitting the 3x size and when I finished the neck it was so small, it wouldn’t go over my head.
    Not sure what went wrong.
    The first decrease is k2 [k1, k2 tog] to end
    Does that mean k1, k2 tog, k1, k2 tog etc all the way to the end. To get to 79 stitches.
    I’m a bit confused.
    Thanks Ruth

      Hi Ruth – It’s most likely that your bind off is too tight. It’s important to have a loose bind off so the sweater goes over your head, but remains close to the neck. I would recommend trying a looser bind off, or working fewer decreases before working the ribbing.
