Collar time

I'm at the point now where I'm picking up the stitches around the neck for the collar. Do I start picking them up at the very beginning of the two-row of the seed stitch band, or do I start where the original front panel starts? Can't tell from the photos of finished ribbys. Also, how come that two-row seed stitch panel looks so flat now, when in all the photos of the finished ribby, it looks more rounded?

You need to pick up from the seed stitch band.

Good luck.

Thanks. but I ended up with about 53 sts, way less than what the pattern called for which was 72 sts (I think the decreases for the front panels were alittle off too) So one side of the collar was off on the rib pattern. I'm going to frog, and maybe just do the rolled collar version....

How exciting! That's just where I am too--it's a rainy day, so I made it through all my seaming in one go.

I think the reason the seed-stitched rows look bumpy in the photos is that once the zipper's installed, the rows bulge out a little to cover it.

Can't believe I'm ready for a zipper. Is this zipper thing REALLY that complicated? why would anyone want a bottom AND top opening zipper? is WAAAY too complicated for me, but it is Sunday at 11:27 pm! maybe tomorrow....

the main reason i like the bottom opening option on a zipper is car rides. when i sit the bottom of the sweater/zippered hoodie/winter coat always curls in and bumps out and is uncomfortable. with a zipper opening at the bottom, you can unzip a few inches and it will lay nice and flat. :) would make more sense with a picture, i guess, but that is why i like them.
