04/08/07: Completed Capecho!

At last all the ends are woven in! And although it seemed like it was going to be on the large size, I think it ended up pretty close to how I wanted it. The most important thing was detaching the collar. The pattern called for a 1:1 ratio of neck band stitches to the body, but that made it very drapey and not easy to keep on. So I ripped that out and then sewed on the collar picking up 1 stich of the body to 1 stich of collar and then 2 stiches of body to 1 stich of collar. This did the trick. Now it is all closer to my shoulders and doesn't fall all over the place. Woo hoo! Still it is a little looser than the pattern photo so beware, but I feel it is wearable so phew, no wasted knitting time for me.

by george i think you got it. i was just about to rip the whole thing apart. i kept thinking i can pull it together at the collar but so many other wrote of disaster that i had given up hope. so glad i found this before i went frogging away!
can you explain this:
then sewed on the collar picking up 1 stich of the body to 1 stich of collar and then 2 stiches of body to 1 stich of collar.

where did you do 1:1 and where did do you do 2:1
