I think that was decided as the correct method (to NOT bind off) earlier in the thread.  That's certainly what I did, and it makes sense to do it that way (like you say, like you do in socks).  Worked for me anyway Cheesy

I am so boring I think people should be interested in me.

it's noticeable, but you could always say it was meant to be that way.... ?  I don't think it looks *bad*.

I would  block it first before I frogged it and see if it that looks any different...

i actually bought some rowan polar for this sweater a while ago but now that i think about i think it may be a bit too "fluffy."  i kinda wanted something that would be a bit stiffer, so i'm thinking of holding 2 strands of worsted weight yarn together.  this should work, right?

also is there a reason that you HAVE to do the bottom part separately from the top?  it seems like lots of people are having a hard time with the grafting.  i wanna try to figure out a way to either do the whole thing in the round or maybe just work it flat but do the whole front as one piece.

any ideas??

in my own experience if I notice a mistake I do it over. (today I am frogging 3 days worth of knitting on dpn because I realized I followed my chart wrong. It looks pretty, but it is still wrong.) I know it will be a pain, and very tedious to do over, but every time I look at it I notice the mistake. It doesn't matter if others notice, to me just knowing it is not as great as it could be bugs me. After all, we don't really want our hand knit sweaters to look "homemade" (in a bad way) do we?

I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!

Someone else suggested that you block it first and I agree. Try to pull at the stitches in opposite angles to set them (if that makes sense). As long as there are no mistakes, blocking should even it out.

Before you frog it, Check out http://www.grumperina.com/knitblog/archives/2005/09/operation_orang.htm , she has a great example of grafting & tweaking her grafted stitches, I think it will help a lot.

Wow what a great site!  Grumperina's step by step instructions for grafting will def. come in handy when I get to that part of the sweater. Yarnfarmr should try the tips suggested from the site--I bet it would make a big difference!

I finished up my version for my wife,  I figured out a way to rotate the leaf chart upside down so I didn't have to do the grafting and so that it looks nearly exactly the same this way  I could just knit all the way down.

My rotated chart:
