I share your frustration with this top - I had the exact same issues with the collar. Yours looks great though!

Hi Immelu, That is a good idea, my fabric was also rather thick. It would make a nice spring top out of a lighter weight knit.

I've made this twice and have had the same corner problem both times. I need to get my review up! But...I still like both of them. :) I think I want to try it in a little thinner knit as both of mine were pretty thick sweatshirting.

This sweater looks great on you and very warm and cozy. Now that you've worked out how to do the collar, it will be easier next time.
