The only variations are the number of stitches initially bound off and how the remaining shaping is done. Square neck that has been worked back and forth. V-neck that has been worked back and forth. V-neck that has been worked in the round. indd 34 2/22/10 2:37 PM C ha p ter 1 0 : Sha p ing the Neckline 35 Sewn and Cut Necklines All the necklines that have already been discussed can also be sewn and cut without any shaping while doing the actual knitting, except boatneck edges which, of course, don’t get any shaping at all.

It lies flat and the edges are neat on the wrong side. Unlike grafting the shoulder stitches together or using backstitches to sew a shoulder seam, there’s no need to keep your stitches even. The yarn used to sew the seam is pulled tight to draw the edges together securely, thus preventing the seam from stretching. After reaching the finished body length, the last row of each shoulder is purled from the right side (or knit from the wrong side if the next row happens to be a wrong side row). Bind off in stockinette on the next row; when cutting the yarn after binding off, you may wish to leave an end long enough to sew the shoulder seam (about twice the length of the seam).

Several rounds of reverse stockinette are added to the top of this sleeve for a facing. Shaped Armholes On the other end of the spectrum is the shaped armhole. Shaping is done along the lower edges of this armhole and eliminates some of the bulk at the underarm edge of the sleeve and bottom of the armhole found on drop shoulder styles. The shaping can be worked as simply as binding off most of the stitches at the bottom of the opening and then decreasing one stitch every other row until the required number of shoulder stitches is reached.
