Ok so I am making 'skully' for bday present and it's starting to give me fits -- and I think I want it to turn out well so bad that I'm giving myself a mental block or something.
I started on the top part yesterday and didn't understand the directions very well so I sort of winged it. I ended up with the neckband (ok so you knit it and you fold it over and sew it -- is that what it means by 'sew neckband seam'?) and then the shoulders bound off like it told me to. Well, the neckhole looked suspiciously small so I tried to put it on and granted I have an enormous head... but it was too small. Though I don't have the bday person's head on hand to measure, I figure if my head is too big then repair is required. So I ripped out the neck -- no biggie since the stiches were just pick ups... right?
So I thought maybe I would move on and work on the sleeves or something... can I do that?? Is the neckband fixable? Can someone tell me how -- since the shoulders are already seamed? Do I need to fix the neckband before I move on or did I ruin it already or what??? The instructions are freaking me out.
