This is my first big knitting project and I am so discouraged!!! I finished each piece of the sweater and sewed all the seams together but the collar does not match up!!! I don't know what to do now. Every measurement is correct so maybe I did it right but am just stuck and need some guidance!! LOL. Please Help if you can!!!

How do you put pictures on these blogs??

Hey there,
I totally adore that sweater, I'm totally going to knit that one too.

As for the collar, you may want to try blocking it to the size you need. That is, if you used a natural fiber. There's a whole section in the first S'nB.
Good luck!

_There is a gallery section here on craftster.
You could also try Photobucket.com or TinyPic.com

Make sure you include [ img ] & [ / img ] -without spaced- before & after the image URL & voila.
-There is also the 'Insert image' icon whenever you post-

I finished this sweater last week too, and I was very disappointed with the pattern. I had to do much of the math on my own to figure out numbers that the pattern should have included, and the front seams do  not match up. The pieces are just not the right shape. I ended up just having to force them- the seaming and finishing took me longer than any adult-sized sweater I've made. If you look closely at the picture of the sweater lying flat in the book, you'll see that it looks lumpy up at the neckline. I recommend Knitty's "Daisy" baby raglan if you ever make another one. Here's how mine turned out: (you can see how my neckline in front is weird too- even after blocking)

Oh no I can't see that picture you posted! This sweater is really bothering me. Thank you all for all your help though. I will try to put pics up soon and figure everything out it the meantime.

I don't know why my picture disappeared- it was there yesterday!  Here's the link:

Yours looks great so far, by the way. That brown is really pretty. I hope you're able to force it into shape! I had to seam, rip out, and reseam a few times to get it right.
