The bands.....

When knitting your bands - yes it's a bit tedious moving the working yarn from one side to the other -- it's important here to keep the yarn floating behind the stitches firm - again, moderation is the key - not too tight, nor too loose.....it's worth taking your time to get nice front cardigan bands that don't pull or sag.  I started each row with an Olive stitch -- so that at the top and bottom of the band, to give that finished look where the bands meet.


The finished band should lie flat - no flaring or pulling.....

At this point I like to tidy up any ends hanging - all of those ends on the bands, and tidy up the steek edges - the neckline steeks and the front band steeks.  Once this is done, you're ready for the sleeves.
I like to finish off the steek edges at this point.
Happy Knitting
