If your pattern calls for it, you’ll need to pick up stitches to finish your neckline. We recommend using a US 0-3 / 2-3 mm circular needle - the skinny needle makes it much easier to see and pick up lots of stitches.
For picking up stitches on the front and back of your neckline edge: How to Pick Up Stitches Around a Neckline
For picking up stitches on the sides of your neckline edge (also used for a button band): How to Pick Up Stitches for a Button Band or Collar.
To add 1 x 1 ribbing to a V-neck using mitered decreases: Finishing a V-neck with Ribbing.
Patterns in the book that use this finishing neckline step are Emma (Version C) & Molly.
