So I have a too big, old cotton knit sweater that I have some big plans for.  But my question is how do I make sure that the the knit doesn't unravel when I cut it?  It is a pretty big gauge size (I am using that word correctly?  basically it is a looser knit style) 

Can I just sew along the place I plan to cut and cut right below that sewing?  Am I making any sense here?

I appreciate ANY help with this, thank you!!  Grin

*****EDIT*****

okay nevermind, I think I found my answer here:

I love how I searched and searched on craftster and all I had to do was look at the hot topics at the top of the page Tongue

Wool unravels less easily than cotton yarn, so you may need to put in more lines of stitching, or zig-zag, but the principle is the same.
