Picking up stitches on a neckline: cast-off edges

Necklines on garments are worked after the shoulders have been joined together and you may be required to pick up stitches from a cast-off edge. This is usually a straight edge.

  • Picking up stitches on a neckline: cast-off edges - Step 1

    Step 1

    How to do it: with RS facing, insert the needle into the centre of the stitch on the row below the cast-off edge. Wrap the yarn around the needle and pull through to the RS.
    NOTE: You can also pick up stitches from a cast on edge in the same way, just insert the needle between the stitches instead of through the centre.
