Anyone have written or videoed info on how to do a mitered V-neck band on a vest or pullover? On most hand knit patterns the middle stitch of the 'v' stands out. On some it's 2 stitches in the middle. Anyone got an easy way to do this on the machine?

You can put the centre one/two stitches on a safety pin. Do the first half of the v neck then leave a long end of yarn when you come to do the second half. Sew up the v and use the long end of yarn to chain stitch the stitch/stitches up the centre seam.

If you look at Janet Spink Easy Necklines. There is one with a V neckline going right round the V and you can make a little stitch which stands out. Hope this helps

I was wanting to do a 1 x 1 rib or a 2 x 2 rib band on the machine with a mitered v-neck.

I think I would have to knit 2 rows, move the stitches on the left and right of the middle stitch to the middle stitch and then move all the stitches -in- toward the middle stitch to close up the holes left by the transferred stitches.

Does this sound right?

Sounds right. Just do a little swatch to test is out to make sure. That's what I do.
