Hello! I have a couple sweaters that have necklines that stretch as I wear them. I noticed a line in Knitting without Tears that advises knitters “to run an elastic thread through the neck stitches.” Has anybody tried this? I handsewed stay tape to one sweater, but it looked ugly and I ripped it out.
I’ve tried sewing thin thread-like elastic, but it was still too thick for the needle and seemed wrong. I’m toying with machine sewing fold over elastic to the back neck and shoulders.
Obviously I sew, too. Non sewers might not be familiar with these types of elastic, but I’m interested to know how anyone would solve the baggy neckline issue.
