Ok, as soon as I got home, I ripped out the edging on the sweater and re-did it. I used Bonnie's suggestion, and I have to say, I really like my sweater now. I didn't so much before, but now the edges are lying down very nice and it looks very even. Thank you Bonnie! Now I just need some buttons!
Hit it with a little steam to block the edging and it should lie nice and flat. I'm so glad you re-did it, and glad you got better results the second time. :-D
Edgings, bands, collars, all are fiddly-- even sleeves... and sometimes it takes a few tries to get them right. In fact, if you get them right the first time, it's a miracle.
I had to redo and reshape the neckband on my orange sweater. My front bands were easy because they were knitted in with the body of the sweater.
