I am knitting a polo neck insert for a friend (after she had admired mine) and I have run out of wool on the cast off! I think that I made mine too 'deep' in the neck, so with a bit of frogging mine will end up shorter and I'll have enough to finish her's! :roll: :wink:


Definitely too deep, although it does hide the double chin!

I hate when this happens. If you haven't already frogged, I have two suggestions.
1. Bind off with a contrasting wool..
2. I used this method once. It wasn't a perfect solution but it worked far better than I expected. At the beginning of the row don't knit the stitch as normal, just pass each stitch over the next one. I hope this makes sense.

No matter what you decide to do its a compromise. Good luck.

Actually I like the way it falls in the front it would stay inside my coat very nicely that way.

It looks fine as it is... For next time, though, try the "yarnless" bind off.

It would have been perfect for your situation...

You didn't knit fast enough Kate 😄
They do both look lovely can see why your friend admired yours

You ended up with two items that are so beautiful, and it was a good idea to take a bit off the one you made for yourself. You will never notice it is gone.

One thing about the yarnless bindoff is that it is not as stretchy as you might like it to be in this situation, but it is a good one to remember.

I did find myself speeding up! :lol: In the end I bought another ball of the same wool as it was only £1 in the pound shop and I'm sure any slight variation in colour will never be seen! I'll just have to knit more fingerless mitts to use up the rest of the new ball!

Not for that short distance, and where it is!
