I'm making a knit blazer and the last time I made it (in October), the notched collar left a bit to be desired.

Do you have a favorite method that you use? Is there a blog or youtube link you could post?

Thanks!

Pam has so many great tutorials! Thanks!

Anything about the actual "notch"? That's where mine got dicey. It's not clean on my first version.

I DID IT!!!!



I should add that I used the pattern, scissors, cloth tutorial and that her using black fabric made it HARD to see what was going on. I had to unpick some stitches (ok, a bunch of stitches) and re-sew some parts but I did it!!!!!

Awesome job! That doesn't look like a knit.

Thank you!

I like the feel of this one...it's a light/midweight from Fabric Mart. I hope it doesn't pill though...

I have two ponte cardigans; one has pilled really badly and the other is wearing nicely. Fingers crossed!
