I'm about an inch away from the decreases on the back and I am having a bit of a length issue. From the posts of those who have finished, I am convinced I should probably lengthen the body by a couple of inches and I'm not sure which way I should do it--here are my options:
1. just continue knitting for a couple more inches before beginning the decreases.
2. pick up stitches along the bottom and knit a few inches in the accent color, creating a dark band all the way around the bottom of the sweater
I think the darker color band along the bottom could look quite nice (I'm doing the all ribbed version) but I'd like some other thoughts on this. I'd hate to finish it and then think the band looked funny...
