I finished my first sweater ever!  I got the pattern from the February 2005 Knit 'n Style.  I have been knitting for like 5 years now and have knit everything from a card to a pair of pants, but I never got around to knitting a sweater.  Now I have!  It turned out a lot better than I thought, but the friend who I made it for needs it to be a lot longer.  So I going to add a rib on the bottom.  Whatcha think?





If you can think of any other ways I can add on length at the bottom, please tell!

It looks so comfy, good job! The yarn looks really neat. What kind is it?

Rib for the bottom would be good as it won't curl compared to stockinette. I suppose you could just pick up the stitches although it will form a small seam/ridge on the inside. What you could do is take one row apart being careful not to drop any stitches. The Provisional Cast On is done this way when you need to connect something later on but waste yarn is used to make it easier to see where you are. If you do it this way, just do one or two stitches at a time, undoing them and picking them up with a separate needle.

Great, thanks for the advise.  I was thinking about taking out the bottom row, but that's always a pain when it is the cast on edge.  I will just have to decide I guess!
The yarn is Labrador by Crystal Palace.
