How to make a professional looking T-shirt neck finish

How to avoid those Pesky holes in the Neckline created when shaping the neckline

  1. On the last stitch of the row approaching the neck edge, knit (or purl depending) the stitch with the loop from the stitch below.

  2. Next row, at neck edge, slip the first stitch, then contine to bind off how many stitches as instructed.

 

 

After many frustrating years of 'filling in' the gaps created on the neckline on the final finishing, I have perservered to find a solution.

After using this method, you will eliminate the loop created between rows that makes the holes. This loop is that last stitch on the row prior to starting the neck bind off, fix that loopy stitch and you will have fixed that hole!
