Need help finishing sweater
I've finally come to the finishing stages of a sweater/jacket. I knitted a 4.5 inch collar and says to pick up 24 stitches on the sides of the collar and knit 4 or 5 rows. Then pick up stitches down the fronts and bottoms and knit same number of rows with buttonholes (just says work buttons). The way I see it there will be a slit (maybe curly) at the bottom of the collar and top of the fronts. Why don't I continue the collar stitches all around the front and bottoms? Or, how do I join them so they look good. This is, of course at the very front of this garment and although not perfect (I've never ever really finished anything as astounding as a complete sweater) I don't want to be reminded or be bugged by this "flaw". Thanks you experts for your help. Now, if I can get this message to post.
