Shawl-Collared Cardigan Reviewed by barbara honeywell on 2012-11-19 ****
I used the suggestions from 2 reviews. The first one was to do 1 inch seed stitch, so edges didn't roll up. The other was rather then sl stitch to do k on purl row and p on knit row.These 2 suggestions resulted in no problems with collar and a garmet I was satified with.
