Knit the rib separately and then sew it on the sweater.

I agree with Roseknit, that's the simple and neater way to do the neckline.

You can do the rib and leave it hanging on the machine, then, starting at the bottom of the V in the sweater hang as much of the neckline as you can, crochet bind off and remove the part that you have bound off, then finish hanging the rest of the neckline in that manner. In other words, rehang the sweater and bind off in sections. If you don't know how many stitches to cast on for the ribbing, hang your sweater in sections and take off on waste yarn.

Or you can hang the sweater starting at the bottom of the
V all the way to the 2nd shoulder, do the ribbing, then hang the 2nd part of the shoulder to the bottom of the V and you will only have a seam on the 2nd shoulder.

1. Seam only 1 shoulder. 2. Pick up the stitches from the "V" to seam then across back stitches and work ribbing being sure to decrease at the "V". Cast off and then pick up the stitches from the other side of the neck from shoulder to V and work the same number of rows of ribbing, again being sure to decrease at the "V". Seam at V and at the open shoulder and where the ribbing meets. Makes a very nice ribbed neck band.

You did a better job of explaining than I did. I left off the step to seam one shoulder.

Hi, Don't know whether this helps. I just cast on 6-8-or 10 stitches, however wide you want the rib band, rib a long piece and then sew on separately. Pull back any left over after sewing it on garment and bind off. Mitre the ends at V neck by crossing over and neatly stitching. Probably not the professional way, but it works for me. I do the same with round neck, button up cardigans and V neck cardigans.
